    Moving accident. Crap.

    I was moving my setup around when a desk lamp fell on my N. ventricosa. Poor thing.

    I'm lucky that there is a basal coming in..cause the main stem got broken almost all the way through.

    It does have another basal though, so it'll be fine. Still, it's a shame.

    Here's the break...it's in the middle of the frame.



    But, here's the basal!


    Can I possibly root this severed stem?

    Thanks!

    Absolutely! It's not a problem at all. Cut off the bits of dead petiole and make four vertical slits.

    I would make that main stem a cutting! It will be fine.

    Looks like your on your way to having two plants. At least you didn't drop a flowering splendiana from the plant bars in your GH onto the floor breaking the vine in two places and the plant aborting the flower. Now I have three plants (one just traded) and still don't know if it is a male of a female. Lucky I had two basils well on their way already making pitchers to fall back on.
