    With it being winter here and short days, I don't get much daylight time during the week in my glasshouse. However, I have a day off today and happened to find that a few of my Neps are producing basal shoots.

    First and largest is one of my N. ventricosa:


    Second is a very small N. ampullaria. This plant has taken quite a bit of time to settle in but is now producing healthy leaves, and as I just discovered, a healthy tiny pitcher on the basal shoot (you can jsut see it upside down under the damaged leaf):


    And finally you may remember this one from my "Today's Nursery Finds" thread from a while back. These are a couple of small basal shoots forming on the N. tobaica x ampullaria:

    Edit: Can one of the mods please change the title to "Basal Shoots". That other text was an accident and I don't seem to have access to change the title of the thread. Thanks.

    Christian,

    Given the time of year here I'm wrapped to be getting the growth I have right now. Can't wait until Spring and longer day length [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Still, I thought it a bit odd to be getting basal shoots from the Vent and baby Amp as I 'thought' basal shoots generally formed on vining plants.

    Aaron.

    Aaawwww... they're so cute!!

    Are you gonna keep them with their mommies or will you transplant to separate pots?

    I'll keep them together Quensel as I like the look of plants with multiple growing points.
