    I had this idea for nep propogation. Don't know if it'll work or not, but I think i'm going to try it, on a few plants, at least. You know how if you take cuttings of or prune neps, they'll send up basal shoots and send out new growth from the nodes along the vine? Well, what would happen if you didn't cut the vine all the way through, but just made an incision? My N. sanguinea sort of exhibits this. The growth point was bruised, during shipping, but it kept growing, and it also send out new growth from the node just below the growth point. Now, a few years later, grows in a Y-shape due to the dual growth points from one stem. I know a method similar to this has been implemented with notching Sarracenia rhizomes, but I've never heard of it being used on Neps. What do you all think?

    I believe Slack mentioned vine notching in his books.

    really? I really must get around to reading those some day...

    JLAP- yeh, I guess it is rather like air layering, but a little different. At least, the way I was thinking of going about it is. However, like I said, I haven't tried this yet, so it may end up doing air layering. I'll see what happens.

    I think it would work, but only on reasonably large plants. Smaller ones can grow as a Y plant (I had a Y plant w/ a 6" leafspan) but I think only plants with a thick vine would still grow the main stem, as well as produce a second.

    yeah it is mentioned in Some books. IF the climbing stem has been broken up to halfway acros the part above can still grow due to the number of capillaris that are still functioning so you will not see roots.

    What about snapping the herd? Is that mentioned by anyone?

    Typically snapping of the herd will cause a swelling which allows more nutrient to be carried as well as inducing branching.
