    About a year ago I was transplanting some of my ventricosas into deeper pots. One of them had a small basal shoot that was going to be buried several inches so I decided to cut it off and on a whim tried to root it.

    This was the cutting then



    and this is the cutting today


    The point is, don't give up on a cutting without at least trying to see if it will take. You never know, these crazy plants fool the best of us.

    Do the plants really catch anything at all with those small pitchers by the way?
