    Air layering is taking a long Nepenthes vine, notching it and covering the notch with spahgnum moss usually. Plantlets should sprout fomr the nothced area.

    Regarding airlayering, in the case of Nepenthes, "plantlets" do not
    sprout from the cut area. Rather, roots eventually appear at this location, and
    the segment of vine with new roots may then be cut free and planted on its own.

    I meant to say they WILL as why would you perform air layering anyways? just to get roots and NO plantlets? I am sure Raw knew what I meant anyway.

    Air layering is commonly used to propagate Nepenthes which are difficult to root in the
    conventional way. The advantage conferred is that the cutting which one wishes to root
    is still attached to a root network (i.e., the "mother" plant). Therefore, it can still receive
    water and nutirents while it grows roots of its own, at the site of the cut.

    This technique has been successfully used with species which are notorious for
    their reluctance to root as individual cuttings; e.g., N. burbidgeae.
