    quick q about nepenthes cutting

    Can they be divided? I have a cutting that seems to be growing leaves in 2 places...i was under the impression that when rooting cuttings that only the top node was used.....could i chop off the top node once it produces a leaf and root it or no?

    It's probably best to wait until those two growth points grow out into full-fledged vines. Trying to root one of them right now is risky because of the energy it will require. Once you have two long vines, then you can cut off one of them and root it safely. Don't be surprised if one of them doesn't vine. . . sometimes Nepenthes cuttings abandon the energy on one basal shoot and put the rest of the energy in the other.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
