    glad you got and like your plants...

    FYI, we don't do cuttings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    That is a whole plant via tissue culture.

    The N. gracilis get so long, they hang off the slef in the greenhouse, and then babies start to form from where it 'bends' it is pretty cool.

    what you can do is prune the plant if it gets too high and plant that, it will grow and you will have more plants forming...N. gracilis likes to bush out when it can. ( from my playing with it )...since it is such a fast growing plant, it recovers quickly! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I have to concur; PFT does a great job! I just received my plants yesterday, and they are awesome. They are my first plants ever, if you don't count the flytraps I bought from the 5 and 10 as a kid and promptly killed...

    At any rate--I have a S. leucophylla, a Ping moranensis and a flytrap. They are all now on my north-facing porch (in the sunniest area) in Dallas--and I am hoping for the best. Any recommendations about these plants that anyone could give would be heartily appreciated!!! Thanks!

    (This is also my first post, so I am looking forward to reading and hearing more from everyone. Warmest regards, John)

    WELCOME!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The only thing I would do is shade the moranensis...Butterworts don't really care for a lot of direct lighitng.

    You can put them behind the VFT and pithcer plant...just as long as they have some light, but are kept partially shaded, they should be cool [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I hope that you learn a ton...there are many many many great people here that will do whatever they can to help out and some even offer free plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ( or seed )

    Take care!

    Congrats, I haven't gotten any plants from here yet but I hope to [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]... I have a question though. What exactly IS tissue culture. is it growing the plant from a chunk of root as apossed to a leaf or what? I've often wonderd about the precise definition.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    Darcie,

    It is growing plants from pieces of tissue. Small piece of tissue.

    In what takes many years from seed, root cuttings, or leaf cuttings will take about 1 year with tissue culturing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    That is why we can offer plants all year round...they are grown all year round here! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
