Im not sure how big the leaves are, but if you dont remove the leaf, it should root faster.
If there is a substantial 'new' plant above where the roots come its unecessary.
Also, if you were to imagine the circumfrence of the stem to be someones back, it would be
best to scratch the hell of out them with your fingernails.
Thats supposed to be a visual for a good way of air-layering, borrowed from air-layering tree's
basically, you have a few scored area's and a few 'bridges' of the cambian layer to supply the
top part of the plant.

If using hormone rooting powder, only apply it to the cut and make sure it doesn’t get onto the leaf joint where the roots will grow from. It helps plants to root but will kill the roots if they come into contact with it. This rule applies to all other plants so I can’t see that it will not apply to Nepenthes too.
With other types of plant, air-layering is usually done in spring/summer, does this apply to Nepenthes too or are they not fussy?

Lets hope the N. hamata, done at the same time, has more success....
13.06.12 edit - the N. hamata developed roots after ~5 months.
