I'm currently trying to root a couple cuttings I purchased this past Saturday, I thought they were doing okay until I looked at them today. One of them (a mystery cutting) has started to turn brown at the middle of the stem, the stem is still firm but I can only imagine that it is some sort of rot settling in or possibly a burn. The cutting, along with a cutting of N. reinwardtiana, was placed outside in the shade and each were covered with a plastic baggie. The cutting of reinwardtiana still looks fine, however, the mystery cutting did receive more light in the afternoon, possibly along the portion of the stem that has turned brown.
There is a node in the sphagnum and another further up the stem. Is there any way to save the cutting?
