    Just a thought... treat it like a cutting and keep in a container of water until it starts roots?

    Lets hope so. Also pray that it's female!

    Jimscott - I've never tried doing cuttings in water, as the perlite method works just fine for me.

    I'd probably mess up and end up with a dead hamata, again!

    I have gone 3 for 3 with water for Nep cuttings and have two more sitting in water. It's seeds that I can't do worth a lick!

    Don't worry Sk..ur seed grown one WILL have roots. No...I don't have one...but this one is from TC which explains the lack of roots as the plant didn't have to bother digging in to obtain nutrients and media. The seed grown one...obviously was grown in media for atleast an yr or so to get to the size that Rob showed so you should be fine.

    @Jefforever,

    Good luck with the plant man. I have nothing much to say since all the advice has been given already. But...I have got a few offshoots of neps (ramispina etc) which looked like that. Stem but no roots. It took a month to start growing. But pot it up in a live sphagnum media and give it atleast 80% - 90% humidity with good air circulation. The plant will DEFINITELY recover as it looks really healthy.

    With seeds it's all about patience. I finally got some N. Sanguinea seeds from the Genting Highlands to sprout. IT TOOK AROUND 5 MONTHS. And it felt like more, wasting my precious growing space...

    Same thing w/ tuberous drosera, I waited about 1.5 years and got nothing. And then I threw the pots out. I should have waited.



    Thanks for the encouragement, Varun.
