    Dip'N Grow also yields favorable results for me in my observations. I also use the cheap stuff Greenlight Rooting Hormone, just a powder, but it can be mixed in with water to make a paste, I believe it also has fungicide mixed in with it, so that always helps.

    I tried rooting a 3" N. ventricosa cutting in distilled water with rooting hormone powder on the end of the cutting. Seemed to take forever. Have another cutting that was smaller than a dime when I cut it and I stuck it in LFS and it did just as well as the water cutting without messing with rooting hormone and water changes.

    Maybe I should have requested a formal poll for this can of worms! It was suggested to me to root cuttings as one would put a rose cutting into a vase. Keep the experiences coming!

    Thanks for the info people, i bought some rooting hormone, along with a grocery store "throwaway plant" that was about 6" of climbing stem, i'll give it a shot now, and maybe trade off the plants that work. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    EDIT: Okay, i'm done with the cuttings, i'll wait a few months and tell you how they are, or until i get some good growth. Along with the 3 N. ventricosas i 'mauled' i also did 2 D. capensis.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
