    Experience w/ specific cuttings?

    I'm going to be taking some N. Albomarginata "black" cuttings soon. Does anyone have experience with rooting this species?

    I also will be receiving a cutting of N. Lavicola. Anyone have experience with this species? It'll probably need the same treatment as a Spectabilis cutting... which I have never rooted.

    Thanks for any advice!

    EDIT: Oh yeah - I'll try to take pics tomorrow!

    Jeff - while I don't have experience with either of those plants you are talking about, I just made a post about cuttings that may be of benefit.

    Good luck!

    Hey Jeff,
    I've rooted a N. albo 'black' cutting. I did it in highland conditions in pure lfs, and it took 4-5 months (!!) to root, but has turned into a great plant! My parent plant, which I traded away a long time ago, was a pretty consistent grower, but in a tank. In my highland grow room, the cutting is now about 1.5 years old, and has several nice pitchers.

    I haven't cut N. lavicola, but I have a big, three growth-point plant that always has 10+ pitchers on it. The pitchers aren't spectacular, but they last a long time, it makes a ton, and the overall plant is very nice.

    Jeff, I have rooted them in lowland conditions. I used perlite and it rooted in 3 weeks.

    I have one and it does not grow well....it's in the basement as intermediate, I would say.
    Does anyone do anything different for this species than their other neps?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Joe, this species does very well as a typical lowland with good air circulation. It is growing for me at my balcony at the spot which receives bright light the entire day and 3-4 hours of direct afternoon sunlight.

    Many thanks to everyone who responded! I think I'm set.

    Sorry, I just have'nt had time to add pics today...

    Cindy - I saw your thread about cuttings on the singapore forum. It's incredibly helpful! I think I'll try that out on my Lavicola cutting...
