    How many nodes can activate at once

    Hi guys...I cut off the top part of my gracilis's stem to make some cuttings and now after 2 weeks the mother plant has some dormant nodes starting to sprout..I always thought that the plant would only activate one but today when i examined my gracilis closely i saw that there is 2 nodes of the green part of the stem, 1 on the brown part and another one coming from the stem just slightly above the LFS...They are all sprouting at once..All 4 sooo do they actually produce that many?? Cos it would be nice to have 4 growing points
    Well i have a growlist her but anyways heres mine in another forum.

    In theory, and someone tell me i I'm wrong, all the nodes could activate. Leaving you with some kind of nep/bush thing.

    correct. in theory every node could have the potential to activate! in reality though it is most common to see from 1-3. my sanguinea, after i cut it way back, activated a total of 7 nodes. it was a nice little bonus =]

    I had one of my older neps activate 4/4 nodes when the growth point burnt off. However, 3/4 growth points aborted and the node closest to the apex remained active and now is the main growth point.

    depends on the individual plant and occasionally species......some really dont seem to like starting to grow from the nodes, others will activate nearly all when the main growth point is cut......most fall somewhere in the middle......

    The most nodes I've seen activated before were five, on a ventricosa.

    Well, its not a cutting, but i have a glabrata that was damaged in a mite attack, and for every damaged leaf it activated a node...i think im up at around 10 active nodes right now, but i think some will be canceled off.
