I repotted my ventrata recently and removed two basal shoots. These two have no roots and I put them into another pot into a transparent plastic bag for the nights, leaving them out to get a little filtered light during the day. The leaves would go limp in the open and were not fully turgid even in the plastic bag.
I know that B1 is commonly used in rooting hormones and even Superthrive. Tired of the "bagging" and "un-bagging", I decided to "medicate" them by using the bottle of Vit B1 that I purchased from a local pharmacy. One tablet - mixed with a cup of water, I then watered the shoots and left them alone for a few hours...then I rinsed the medium of excess B1.
The shoots have never been better after that! They have been in filtered sunlight ever since and have not gone limp at all!!
Amazing but don't follow suit...unless you know your B1 and have got extra cuttings to spare. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
