The Nepenthes cuttings

The cuttings I took from my Nepenthes ventrata two months ago are doing okay! I lost one of the three cuttings, but the rest are alive and rooting. So far none of them have shown any new leaf growth, but the stalk I took the cuttings from is now growing fresh, green side shoots and basal shoots. I’m glad the experiment hasn’t failed completely!

I took the cuttings out of the plastic bag they were in after only a couple of weeks because I saw what looked like sooty mold on some of the leaves. One of the cuttings had already shown signs of root growth, so I just stuck them back in their old pot with wet sphagnum moss.
