    I've been looking all over for a link or a source to help me get cuttings from my N. ventricosa. I need to know where to cut, how to cut, and how exactly to plant it in the new pot. Could anyone help me?

    Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]

    Welcome aboard ;>

    Cuttings are not to difficult. The most important part is to keep the potting mix pretty moist and the humidity very high while at the same time keeping temperatures and light levels moderate so the cutting doesn't dry out before it has a chance to root.

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

    I was also wondering if anyone has tried doing an air layering method of growing a new plant? Does it work for Nepenthes?

    Heres a link to what air layering is: Air Layering
