    Thats a great help..

    I'll post a image ap of what I got so people can see, I think the die back must be because there's not enough white when the pulling was made!

    Here is the one I had strike from a previous years stem. Make sure you pull from the bulb so there is some white part of the bulb. I think this is the most important thing to do.

    What conditions are you keeping them in?

    This what I did ...

    I pulled the leaf down to rip the white part of the root, then dipped it in hormoe powder, the laid it on damp peat, put very very little over the white bit then left it. These are in the same place as the other plants... Where they grow.

    Sounds like you're doing it right. It could be the rooting hormone that's killing them. When I use hormones in tissue culture, the tissue has a tendency to die faster. You absolutely don't need it for doing pullings.

    Is just the top leaf part dying or is the entire thing, white bit at the base and all, dying? If it's just the top part with the trap and leaf base, that's normal. The important part to keep alive is the little white bit near the base.

    Hi

    This was the stuff I used on the roots so now I am avoiding it



    These are to leaf pulls taken today... from a Low Giant







    I have now place the root part under damp peat... does this look ok to you...

    As for the dying trap well roots came with it so who knows what the success on that will be .... Advse welcome...

    As here are the other's that failed with the root hormone powder....
