    Nepenthes Cutttings!





    How many cuttings can/should I take... And How to ?

    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/how...opCuttings.php

    It says to remove the whole plant from the pot.. Is this necessary or can I leave it in the pot and cut the vine off?

    Also, how do you cut it ? With a knife.. ? No place I read from says to use what to cut it.

    Instead of bagging it up can I;

    A) Leave it where the mother plant I took cuttings from is growing,

    B) On a Window

    C) No other choice, suck it up and bag it.

    Thanks in advanced. :]

    I cut up my cuttings with one or two nodes each, put 'em in live sphagnum, bag it, and wait.


    There's another option (That I haven't explored) : Water rooting.

    Water rooting works for more vigorous species. I think you could take about 3 cuttings safely from that plant. I would use a very sharp sterile knife (heat it for a few seconds and cool). I don't bag my cutting. You could just leave the plant in the pot. What is it by the way?

    Needs more light...

    That is why it won't pitcher and is 'vining'.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    i agree that it could potentially use more light to start it pitchering

    Personally, I love water rooting cuttings.. i've had a 100% success rate with over 10 different cuttings. ( not all "easy" more vigorous types )

    Now I just use a tub with 100% perlite and then just refill it with water every couple days...

    Good luck

    Hmmm, well My ventrata is outside aswell. The stem is starting to turn red, and the leaves are gaining colour, however. it too, doesn't want to pitcher. It get direct light in the morning, and bright indirect light during the afternoon.
