Thread: Update on cuttings

  1. #1
    Guest
    The cuttings of N. sanguinea dark, and N. bongso x maxima that I took on Dec. 1, are already showing signs of rooting. All 11 of them have nodes that are beginning to grow. Looks like a 100% strike [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .

    Nathaniel,

    the 3 cutting i recieved from you are still not showing any signs of rooting but, they are still green in color which is good. don't actually remember when i got them or planted them but, it wasn't that long ago. just giving them some more time to see what happens. thanks

    You guys should have no problems these are easy species to prop via stem cuttings.

    I didn't expect them to turn out so well, as this was my first time taking Nepenthes cuttings. Now I just need to propogate them via tissue culture, so I can see the lower pitchers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] .

    Nathaniel,

    Did you use sphagnum to root them?
    I could be wrong on this, but if you let the plants vine out over the pot so that the growing point falls below the soil surface, at some point a basal rosette should form. Won't the pitchers formed on the rosette always be lower? That has been my limited experience, but someone correct me if I am in error.

    Regards,

    Joe

    You are correct Griffen. And, I used vermiculite, which seems to work wonders [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .
