    Rooting Nep Cuttings Hydroponically???

    Was just wondering if anyone has ever tried rooting a Nep cutting using the hydroponic method & how / if it worked...

    i.e. Placing the potted cutting in a tray of water aerated with an aquarium pump / On a heat mat

    I am trying a cutting in just plain water if that counts. I have read from others it can be successful but have never tried iit until now because I usually use 100% perlite and a humidity dome.

    An aquarium pump would probably help but perhaps not necessary. I really don't know.

    I've not tried the heat mat or the airstone, but I've had limited success with water rooting myself. The only one I was able to root in water was ventrata.

    I have rooted quite a few highland and intermediate Nepenthes in plain water. (I'm pretty lazy -- one cutting that I set aside and forgot is now blooming with a mass of roots in the water.)

    I didn't take pictures, but I rooted several sizeable Ventricosa cuttings in plain ol glasses of water in my grow area. They actually all rooted within two weeks and I let them grow for another in the glass before I transplanted.

    I must be the laziest cutting-rooter ever. I just grab some nep mix, dip the cutting in rooting powder, shove it in the pot, and put it with the rest of my plants. Works about 80% of the time.
