    Growone rooting hormones (cut 1/4-1/2 slits in the stem at the base and dip it in the growone there is also rootone but, i heard that growone is better it is a liquid so it puts right amount of hormones on the stem where rootone is a powder and there is always to much or to little on it.

    place it in LFM and keep it humid

    also cut the leaves in half from tip to center.

    Joe, 50F sounds like a concern to me, considering I kept the plant at a minimum of 66F; even though a highlander should be ok with this, perhaps just the sudden change in temp caused the browning. I still would recommend keeping it warmer.

    Also, don't worry about cutting back too much; this particular plant grows VERY fast so you'll have a gorgeous plant by summer if you keep light levels high enough.

    In regards to taking cuttings, your comment of carving 2 grooves on either side of the stem, an inch or so up from the cut, is very effective: I have observed cuttings with 5-inch root masses, dangling ONLY from these two cut grooves. It would appear that in some cases roots would form no other way.

    OK, the dead is done. Three stems have been treated with hormones and placed in the large LFS next to the original plant. Looking closely at the plant base it still seems healthy so I expect it to do well.

    I've moved the heater off of the day timer and turned the humidifier up. This is ok for now but it will need its own chamber soon or my other cps may suffer in the higher night temps. work work work. but the rewards are so great.

    thanks all,
    joe
