Hi all.. I unfortunately had to take a cutting of one of my prized plants, and I'm a little worried about it. I purchased "Ruton" on the local economy here, which I assume is similair to Rootone if not the same. I put the cutting in a sealed ziplock baggy in my lowland terrarium (it is a lowland) with Ruton on the base wrapped in a moist paper towel. This was about two weeks ago I believe (Pthiel: correct me if I'm wrong).
I checked the stem of the cutting a few days ago and it did not appear to have any new growth. But...Today I noticed that it looks like the growth point appears to have grown just a tiny bit (which it hadn't done since the cutting was taken. At least I think so, I hope its not my imagination. Anyway.. The plant is down to one healthy leaf, and the growth point.
Could anyone make some suggestions? Hopefully I can get some live sphagnum from my friend Pierre to help encourage growth (I'm sure the paper towel is far from ideal).
Any input would be helpful.
