Hi everyone, I'll have to make some cuttings of some of my Neps soon, and I was wondering what is the best "rooting medium" for the cuttings you've succesfully used so far. I've read about sphagnum moss (dead), living sphagnum, pure perlite... What is the best, from your own direct experience? And by curiosity, how did it take from the day of the cutting to the first root appearance? Cheers Vincent
I have a love of science and as a result have been testing multiple methods of leaf pullings on Dionaea for some time now, this is a log of my testing method, results and conclusions. Introduction: I'm a student so cutting costs is one of my top priorities when taking cuttings, as a result all of my experiment was preformed using items that can be found in the common household(excluding a full spectrum CFL and a VFT:-P) as a result no chemical additives were used eg. Rooting hormones, anti-fungal powders .etc. All experiments were preformed over a three month period During said period
Hi! I wanted to share this picture of a cutting from my Nepenthes x Linda. The cutting was taken 2-3 months ago and rooted in water. Two weeks ago I transplanted it to a mix of LFS/perlite/orcid bark. To my surprise I discovered yesterday that it was starting to flower. It's the first time a Nepenthes flower for me. Never thought it would be a cutting! So what do you think of this? Will the cutting have enough "strength" to pull this through? Also is it safe to presume that the vine would have flowered if left on the mother plant?
