    Pulled my N. ventricosa's out of the terrarium for a spring cleaning and to feed 'em a cricket. Haven't pulled them out since I put them in there last year. Anyway, discovered 2 little shoots on two of them I got last summer. I wasn't expecting them to send up shoots 'till next year or the year after [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !
    Now I gotta take some more pics ppls.

    My ventricosa cuttings generally send up basal shoots after a few months. If the cutting wasn't the terminal but the mainstem dies back and a basal shoot becomes dominant, but even then there's still basal shoots coming up.
