    Hi. I'm about to get an unrooted cutting of N. hamata. It should be off the growth point. How easy is this species to root? What is the best method for rooting it in my household conditions? Temps are about 70~85F . I will be rooting it inside one of those plastic cubes from botanical wonders. Would soaking the cutting and soil in a superthrive solution help? Please let me know, because I don't want to pay $50 just to lose the darn thing. Thanks.

    $50 for an unrooted cutting doesn't sound too fair...

    my understanding is N. hamata isnt to hard to root. i had a 2 and a half foot N. veitchii cutting root without a problem. i really should have cut it into smaller pieces but it did just fine. i also dont think the price is unreasonable for a decent hamata cutting, especially since its not really on the market at the moment

    Hmm. Unfair for who, me? I was kinda thinking the same, considering, as it is unrooted, I could lose it. I hate gambling. Guess I'll just pray for it when I get it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ! Yea, veitchii is easy to root. 2.5 feet huh?

    You may want to talk to Elegecko, Capslock, or Gooner, to namedrop a few that have this species. Um.... Tony Paroubek is very knowledegable about Nepenthes.
