    It's a N. 'Ile de France' I got from Pyro. I was really excited when he offered me this cutting because of his pictures he shared a while back. I am pleased to be seeing it do so well.

    About how long did it take that cutting to get to the point that it is at in your picture?
    Several weeks.

    Nice. I've been wanting one of those for a while. When it gets as big as Pyro's, give us some pics...

    The method I've used most successfully these last few years with Nepenthes cuttings is to cut the severed end longitudinally with a razor blade once or twice, to expose even more potential germinal tissue (in a crosswise manner -- recently illustrated on this forum) and dip it in Clonex. This rooting hormone is very viscous and completely seals the cuts. I then plant the cutting(s) in my preferred media of live sphagnum moss or in a standard mixture of LSM, peat, perlite, pumice, orchid bark, etc. and don't disturb it until I see new growth from the node(s). Tbs and humidity levels appropriate to growing a given Nepenthes species, whether being highland or lowland are applied.

    I've rooted any number of species this way -- Nepenthes hamata most recently -- with very few episodes of failure, regardless of the size, age of the cutting, or the number of nodes (most of mine are single) . . .
