So, I bought a Nepenthes x ventrata recently, and I have some questions about nepenthes vining. So, my questions are, if when my Nepenthes starts a vine I bury the vine in another pot with a growth point just below the surface, will it form a seperate connected rosette, will the vine stop or continue growing, and will the two rosettes be able to share minerals, water and such over the vine connecting them? Or will they just separate eventually?

Very interesting question. I have never seen anyone try this so maybe other ppl will know? Are you going to try this as an experiment?

I've air-layered Nepenthes several times, and that would really be the same thing. All indications are that it would root, especially if you make an upward cut below a node, and put a bit of sphagnum and rooting hormone it it, and everything would keep living and growing.
