    According to PhissionKorps, light negatively affects rooting, so if you did do the water in a glass method, you would want to cover it so that it is dark in the water and the glass. Did you see this thread?

    I put them in pots of regular nep media (with lfs), and in normal growing conditions, though usually not the brightest spots, and get about a 90% success rate. No bags, I just cut up the bottom of the stem, dip in powdered rooting hormone, and cram em into pots. Then leave them alone!!! Don't go checking for roots all the time. I never check. Just wait for it to start to grow a normal new leaf and by then there are lots of roots.

    its a ventrata btw.
    well! My 2/3 was N.glabrata

    Also..I didn't do anything special to the vine. the vine is very thin...so I didn't make any slits or anything. I am sure if I did the third one would also have struck.
