Propogation

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plants can be propagated by seed, cuttings, and tissue culture. Seeds are usually sown on damp chopped Sphagnum moss, or on sterile plant tissue culture media once they have been properly disinfected.

 

Propogation by cuttings

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Cuttings may be rooted in damp Sphagnum moss in a plastic bag or tank with high humidity and moderate light. They can begin to root in one to two months and start to form pitchers in about six months.

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant young plants in a 1:1 mixture of orchid medium with moss or perlite.
