    TheAlphaWolf,
    Most of them are Nepenthes 'ventrata' (Nepenthes ventricosa x alata). The others are believed to be N. khasiana x N. ventricosa (Nepenthes 'Emmarene')? That is what several people thought when I posted pictures of the plant and pitchers over a year ago.


    Laura,
    Thanks for the comments.
    I do terrible at pygmy gemmea and so - so with starting seeds.

    Laura,

    I too favour elgecko's way of rooting the cuttings over the usual "cuttings in a bag". A lower humidity in the surroundings seems to stimulate faster root growth as long as you keep the media moist, not wet. Keeping the media airy with perlite (in elgecko's case) also helps tremendously. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Now that I put my nep cuttings in a tray in the window they seem to be doing fine. I hope they will root.

    Well, as long as we're talking cuttings, is it better to put cuttings in natual light (a windowsill) as opposed to artificial lights? My apartment is pretty dry and the windows are somewhat drafty, so I think that cuttings would have a better chance with the rest of my CPs, under the grow lights. Is there something about natural light that makes it especially preferable?

    I have never tried my cuttings under artificial lights. I would think it would be fine.
    I'm sure someone has tried it and can give there first hand experience.
