Thread: First time cutting

    Do not do that again [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] . Anyway, I have great success with the following method;

    Take cuttings, dip them in rooting horomone, place in pots of vermiculite, place pots in sealed terrarium under 4 40 watt flourecent tubes with some shading plastic between the plants and bulbs, and with less than 1/2 an inch of water maintained in the bottom of the tank. It heats up a lot during the day, and gets down to 60F at night, with constantly very high humidity. It looks as if I'll get a 100% strike (12 out of 12). Hope that's more on topic...

    Thanks for all the advice guys... So when do I know that the the cutting has rooted and is stable enough for a permanent home? Do I just keep picking it up and checking the roots? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    Please keep it to the question on hand and rooting Nepenthes cuttings. If you wish to ask if Neps has any spare cuttings available, contact him via PM or email please

    I understand that whomever did this tookover Ragnorak's password and posted as Ragnorak, is that right?
    Throwing that aside, what was it referring to? Unless I am overly tired and out of it, I do not see anyone in this thread asking for cuttings from neps or anyone else.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Many of the easier to root varieties, like N. ventricosa, will
    have suitable roots after about three months. I usually allow
    at least three months, and then check development by carefully
    removing the rooting medium from the pot, and then peeling it
    away from the base of the stem to see if I can ascertain the
    presence of sufficient root tissue. Exercise care, however,
    as the roots are brittle and easy to damage.

    Hi Cchang!
    I have only attempted 1 cutting so far....and I'm batting 1000. Not too tough when doing Gracilis, though, is it?
    Now, don't anyone else sneer at me over this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    Remember how psyched you were on YOUR first success?

    Anyhow, I did just like Neps said, though I butchered the actual cut (didn't seem to matter, but it's Gracilis, after all). I potted the cutting in pure LFS (don't know if that was wise, but it was at hand), and put the whole thing, pot an all, in a zip lock bag. Placed under flourescents. I did this about 2-3 months ago, and first new growth was apparent about 3 weeks ago.

    Ragnarok's post was edited as it simply was a request for spare cuttings from Neps, and did not address the issue of rooting cuttings. Something I felt was not appropriate to the discussion at hand. The original request was deleted and the message you see added.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
