    turning 1 aristo into 3

    This aristo was originally one main stalk.. but shot out a double growth point side shoot shortly after arrival here.

    Here's the plant prior to dividing.



    Of 3 growth points, I was able to divide it into 2 rooted sections. The 2 smaller growth points are still sharing.. for now.



    Roots emerging from the larger stalk



    The larger growth point, now on it's own



    The two smaller growth points still have some growing to do before I'm able to split them up.

    Are you sure that's an aristo ? The pitchers don't look round enough and the lid placement doesn't look right either. Looks a lot like another member's "aristo" that is an obvious hybrid. Where did it come from ?

    It's 100% N. aristolochoides. I can probably dig up some pics from when the plant first arrived. The main stalk had 3 pitchers that were unmistakably all aristo. Since then the main stalk died shortly after popping out these 3 growth points. Just immature baby pitchers is all.

    I mean wouldnt it be kind of hard to tell if it was a hybrid or not with immature baby pitchers since they look nothing like the adults?

    Yeah I feel like there is a lot of pitch-fork rustling going on around here about fake aristolochioides. These plants are way too young to be certain.

    Fake aristos? Haven't heard that one yet.
    All I know is that even sickly looking in that last pic, it's obviously aristo. Don't think anyone wants to dispute that, or am I wrong?
