You don't need to cut your flowers ....


Recommended Posts

It's a false vivipary and once the plant or plants are growing on the stalk sprout roots you can pot them up. I do this all the time and it is an ideal way of getting plants that are identical to the parent plant.


Some years you get the odd one on a plant but other years so many on separate plants it is hard to keep up with them.


This year they are shooting up everywhere so I guess weather is a factor. I have noticed that they occur in mild years and extremely cold years.

The weather probably is a deciding factor. Normally I cut off all the flower stalks from my VFT and I always put the stalks in the pot. Many of them though not all of them throw up new plants this way.

In my experience, an additional treatment with hormone substances (rhizopan, clonex) on cutted VFT flower stems does not have any further positive effect on making them root. 

Cut them at an early stage (approx. 3 cm) and just put them into chopped sphagnum. Success rate under my conditions (ordinary GH in Southern Germany with no additional illumination) depends on the clone, mostly between 60 - 90 %.

Best regards,
