    Well, in theory, there is a way to do what srduggins suggested with the growing point, but it would involve tipping the pot (and using something to keep the soil from spilling out) so the growing point is below the soil surface.

    Cheers,

    Truncata will produce basal shoots when it's good and ready. It may take some time...

    This species strikes easily from cuttings. The hardest part is taking the cuttings, both due to the short internodes and the thickness of the stem.

    ONce N. truncata's vine lengthens, which can take many many years, mine has 2 basals and the vine is approx 1.5 feet long...maybe longer now.

    Strange. Mine is well over 2' (almost 3' ) . I may actualy take cuttings, but like sydney said, the vine is the thickest of any species, and would be awkward. How much do you think a truncata cutting would sell for [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ?
