    Well I guess I'll give it a try

    Was watching a video on cloning (Non-Carns) & they where putting the cuttings in pea gravel in mesh hydro pots, reg. pots, peat pots & had some that were just poked through holes in a floating piece of styrofoam which were all set in a tray off water with a long air stone in it and they had roots growing everywhere in like 2 weeks time

    I'll post pics once I get things set up

    Caps....
    It's not laziness, it's conservation of energy!
    I usually just do the same thing, depending on how valuable the cutting is to me.
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Ok Here We Go

    Received an Alata X Maxima in a trade that was a long somewhat rooted vine cutting that got damaged in shipping
    The vine was bent/broken in two spots so I cut it

    Here's pics of the hydro set up~

    Made a hole in a tall plastic container / Siliconed in some aquarium tubing / Using a round air stone hooked to a small aquarium air pump

    Dipped the cutting in RooTone / Repotted it in straight LF Moss (had it in a peat LFM mix)

    Will be keeping it on a windowsill for now since I don't have an outlet in my greenhouse

    Will keep you updated & let you know how it goes

    Just To keep you up dated on this project

    It Didn't go so good

    The leaves were yellowing & they looked more wilted then they should have IMO
    So I pulled it, re-cut the stem, re-dipped it & potted it up as I would normally do with a cutting
    &
    Will just hope for the best

    Oh Well
    It Was Worth a Try I Guess

    I used hydro shale pelllets to hold my Ventricosa up, maybe ventricosa is just that much more tolerant to me essentially trying to drown it. I've had luck with Deroose Alata too.

    Lets hope for the best with your cutting
