    Hamata Leaf

    About six weeks ago I accidentally popped off a small leaf near ground level while looking for thripes. I tossed it into the trash bin and later decided to stick it into a small pot of coir to see if it would take. After placing a Pepsi bottle greenhouse over the top I stuck it in the back of the rack and forgot about it. I ran across it today and was surprised to see the leaf still bright green like when it was placed there. Any possibility that it might actually produce a clone? How long does it usually take for roots to form?

    I've never heard of nepenthes growing from a leaf cutting but if it works it is certainly publication worthy! Best of luck to you!

    Don't know if it would take, I have never heard of taking nep leaf cuttings before either. Will be interested to see if it grows!

    I will just return it to the same location on the rack and ignore it like before but I suspect it will peter out by the end of January.

    unless there is a portion of the stem from the base of the leaf, your chances are pretty much nill.

    Oh, I stuck in multiple leaves into live spaghnum, and not by accident. One did get some growth about 3 weeks later, a tiny root thingy but the humidity must have not been high enough and it eventually dried out. I had some pest problems and I was trying to dry things out. Also, me taking out the leaf on multiple occasions for progress checks probably did not help either. When I have extra leaves to spare, which won't be for a while, I will try it again. Currently, they just got amputated for explants experiments.

    I've had a snapped off tentaculata leaf stay green for around 2 months and it was just sitting in a small puddle on the greenhouse floor. Getting a leaf to root would probably never happen

    I know of one person (can't remember his name) that made a Nepenthes leaf root. It lived for quite some time and never really made any basals.


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