    Does anyone know if it's the same ..how do I put this...if it's the same cause/effect to put the growing point below the top of the pot and to cut the vine to induce basal growth? I guess what I am asking has anyone done the first, got a basal, then cut the vine and gotr another basal?

    Regards,

    Joe

    Joe, not that I've seen. Mike Catalani had some N. x ventrata and a neat lowii hybrid I think it was lowii x eymae by the looks of it had their growing points upside down still making pitchers and no basal shoot were present that I could see. Is this what you wanted to know??

    I was just wondering if the stimulus for making basals were different from each method, so you could get two basal starting at once. if you cut vine, it tends to start producing from the next lowest node, doesn't it?

    Generally Yes Joe. Cytokinin produced in the roots travel up the stem and accumulate at the cut end because they can't go any further. This stimulates the closest node to initiate growth.

    I have not tried it but IF you cut the top off and then bend the bottom piece over so the highest point is no longer the cut end. It may produce a lateral shoot closest to the new high point.

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