N. rafflesiana var alata x [mirabilis – winged x (mirabilis x Chelsonii)]

N. rafflesiana var alata x [mirabilis – winged x (mirabilis x Chelsonii)] and N. mirabilis – winged x (mirabilis x Chelsonii) are nice, winged and smaller lid.

Overall, N. rafflesiana var alata x [mirabilis – winged x (mirabilis x Chelsonii)] is nice plant. But, I dont like their lid, whereby it is smaller if compare with peristome size.

I propagate my nepenthes basal/stem cutting using water method. I cut half mineral water bottle and make 2 overflow hole at the bottle (height of water is depends on length of cutting). Below photo taken on 23rd February 2011.

Below is N. globosa x kuchingensis basal cutting that I did on 26/Jan/2011.




Below are N. mirabilis full green stem cutting that did on 10/Jan/2011

part of the cutting


Upper node that failed to give be off shoot because it is cutted too low . But, lower node still giving me off shoot

2 stem cutting that produce root

From above 2 set of cutting. I learn below
1. basal cutting will produce root faster.
2. when doing stem cutting, make sure didnt accidently cutted those “node”
3. Base on a post at green culture singapore, stem cutting that have leaf will produce root faster. Base on above 2 set of cutting, it seems like it is true. Or may be it produce root faster because it is upper portion of stem cutting. (Not dare to conclude it).
