    Hey guys, I received a cutting...a very extremely well rooted cutting and I need some opinions on how to pot it up. The stem on this cutting is a little under an inch tall, but the root system is at least 8" long. Any potting suggestions? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Hey Dude,
    Same thing happened to me a while back when I accidently butchered my tobaica. I wound up with a 2 inch plant (like 3 leaves or so) and a whole mass of roots. I just potted it up and put it close to the lights. Worked out pretty well. I think, though, it is going to depend a little on the species (tobaica has turned out to be something of a weed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )...What kind is it?
    Who was that I eventually traded that off to? I forget...Was that you Snowyfalcon? My memory these days...it's really good, just really short! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Anyhow, whoever you are, if you read this, post your comments on how it's doing!

    It's the hareliana cultivar. I'm just basically trying to figure out if I should put it in a 10" deep or so pot since the roots are that long. I potted it up actually in a 4.5 inch pot since that's what I had and the first leaf to open looks a little odd. I'm guessing from root stress.

    How dare you accuse me, Schloaty! ROFL!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] I'm 99% sure you traded it to Mindmaze128. I am not the proud owner of this species, yet....

    Schloaty,

    I was bored, so I found the old link. Here ya go!

    Tobaica trade

    ***bored stiff***

    Just to let you know, the D. Capensis seeds you sent me are up and growing, and even have a few carnivorous leaves! Though slow growing, I know it will be worth it.

    Yeah, those capensis seedlings can be slow, eh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] But, for no (to me) apparent reason, they'll suddenly explode in growth....then slow down again, and repeat.
