    Update

    It seems my plants have been busy lately. Here's an update on some of them.

    Here is my air-layering experiment on my very ugly green amp. The plan was to air-layer it, then cut it and hopefully force basals to grow. Well it beat me to it. The air-layering seems to be working, I have a tiny root emerging.


    Entire plant:


    N. spectabilis clone 1, I apologize for it being dark.


    Full shot, with a newly opened pitcher on the right, older one in the center, and one finishing up opening on the left.


    Not quite basals, but four activated nodes on the spec x vent.


    Basal on my bical x amp


    Anyone interested in a basal swap later on?

    Enjoy,
    Crystal

    You're doing air layering?! Good for you! Great job! Of course now I've gotta do it!

    Looks awsome Crystal. Seems like I need to try that air-layering.

    Looking good Congratulations on all the basals/nodes! Airlayering is when you notch the stem and try to have it root from there, right?

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Air-layering seems quite fool-proof, unlike trying to root a cutting. So far in cuttings I'm about 1:1.

    Here's the article that I followed, it's the best one I've run across:

    EDIT: That's right Cap. I did a pretty deep diagonal slit and stuffed some LFS in the wound to prevent it from healing.

    YES! Once a few of my newer basals get a little bit bigger I was thinking of setting up a basal trading post thread, for basal swaps. Here's what I got coming up in the coming weeks/months:
    • N. (kampotiana x maxima) x sanguinea (several)
    • N. gracilis


    Good growing, as always, Crystal.

    Thanks for the compliment X. Sounds good to me. You can have your choice of basals/active nodes whenever they get up to size. We can work out the details later, feel free to shoot me a PM anytime.
