    Hey all,

    My aristo has started to vine...or at least I think so. The inter-nodal distance has greatly increased in the last four or five leaves, and the pitcher buds look like they're getting attached further towards the back of the proto-pitcher. The vine is just shy of a foot tall....Is this about right to start seeing uppers in this species?

    Also, has anyone here had their aristo produce basal shoots?

    I think you should cut the vine into pieces and trade them off. You know to people like me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Tall enough to start making upper pitchers I would say. N. aristolochioides will make lateral shoots without too much trouble. It is however EXTREAMLY slow to root cuttings and they often fail totally.

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

    I'm in full agreement with Treaqum.

    From what I've read it's one of those species that goes vining up through the trees... so I imagine uppers come pretty quickly.

    Machete, it's in typical highland conditions....high 50's to low 60's at night and high 70's low 80's for the day, 80% covered tank, so decent humidity (though over the summer it didn't mind the deck railing, so I don't think it's all that sensative in this area), and I use those fluorex 65 watt flood lights. Medium is LFS with mixed in "orchid mix."

    Thanks for the info, Tony. I do intend to try and root this one. I seem to have better luck rooting the hard ones that I do with the easy ones....I rooted a one node cutting I got through the mail (complex hybrid), which I later killed from neglect (stupid), but have yet to succeed with x 'Ventrata.' Go figure.

    Tony - you say "often" fail - have you had any success? There are about 4 of us over here in Oz that have tried on numerous occasions to root aristo but they have all failed.
