    Just to let you know I took 2 cuttings from my N.ventricosa and N.sanguinea,because of them being so bad looking and thinking the roots might have rotted because of parents over watering. about 3 weeks ago and they both rooted!

    Wow, 3 weeks? I'm still waiting for my super tiny spathulata cuttings to root it's been like over a couple of months... Then a few weeks ago I started some maxima x bongso and stenophylla cuttings. Any way I'm trying some cuttings with rooting hormones in vermiculite for some reason all the leaves on them dried or turn black in a hurry... I don't suppose this is suppose to happen? Well atleast I still have some in plain water that are looking good. I can't wait till they get rooted I'm over saturated with stenophyllas... 15+ =P

    Yeah this is the last time I'm going to use it. I had good luck with just water on my first try with my large spat. Tho it still took awhile to root.

    I had many successes with cuttings and I never used any rooting hormones. I just wrapped it with spaghnum moss and gave it high humidty and low light.
