Hi all again,
I'm thinking of doing some stem cuttings of my N.Gracilis to produce more plants for trade/insurance (in case the original one dies *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ).
I've been provided with some instructions by some kind members of this forum, but me being the beginner gardener than I am, can't comprehend all the steps, hence I'm here to seek help once again *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
The instructions are from here.
First, the cutting. What's a node? Where can I cut? If u refer to the pic of my Nep, can I cut where the yellow circle is?
So each section (in between 2 nodes, whatever nodes are) is one stem cutting?
Second, after cutting, do I take out the leaves or pitchers?
Thirdly, I read that Superthrive shld be used. How shld one apply this? Do I dab the severed stem into the solution?I also notice here
that there is a white tape around the bottom of the stem... is that necessary?
Lastly, what sort of medium is good? Those recommended for mature Neps? When sticking the stem into the medium, how deep must it go? Is there a special way to position the stem?
Many thanks for any answers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
