    Hey Virus, thanks!

    In return for your kind advice, I will tell you to ditch photoclubs...

    www.netfirms.com will provide you with 20 MB of web space for free if you sign up as a business (which is no big deal, they don't verify.)

    for instance, I have signed up under http://rampuppy.netfirms.com and as soon as I get cracking, a web page will be ther...

    I use it to store all my photos that I link to here... it's a great little resource.

    It has been over three months, and my ventricosa x maxima cuttings have produced plenty of roots, but no leaves. The dormant nodes haven't even begun to grow.

    I don't feel so bad now. My N. vetricosa has been sitting in water for two months now with no roots. It's produced a couple of small leaves with what might turn into pitchers on the end, but no roots.

    I took a cutting of my xVentrata a little while ago and was surprised by how fast it took root. It's my first cutting so I was dead chuffed that it worked out okay [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    If your cutting has lots of roots but no leave it is time to transplant it and give it LOTS more light, move it in with mature plant in your main growing area. My Ventricosa cutting has rooted and produce 2 leaves from 1 dormant bud and one leave already looks like a pitcher will form. It does take while apporx: 1 month to get a cutting this far but with species liek Gracilis it may be a littl as half a month!

So it take's a long while for the green point to emerge on the brown stem.

    There was discussion of using kiki paste here a while back, to get plants to activate dormant buds... has anyone tried this yet?

    The guy I got that ventricosa x maxima cutting from uses it. I think he put some on the nodes of my cutting, but if thats the case, then I don't know if it's all that great [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] .

    well, my understanding is that you put it in a ring around the plants stalk. The growth tip, or growing tips, secrete a hormone that travels down the plant, and the roots secrete one that goes 'up'.

    The Kikki paste supposedly mimics one of these hormones, I don't know which, and tells the dormant node below to start poppin new cells out and going for the gold... so if he just slathered it on the nodes, I am not sure it would do much good.
