Darlingtonia with no roots

by That one plant boi » Sat Jul 13, 2019 3:10 am

Hello guys! So today I received a darlingtonia which appears to be a stolon cutting, but it has just one little new root that is in the beginning stages of growth. Would it be possible for this plant to pull through?

Given the optimal conditions, yes, it should root fine especially since it does have a root budding out.

I don't really screw around with stolons much since I want my pot to start filling out and eventually have a small tub of Darlingtonia, but once I tore one off in the middle of winter thinking I should have a "back-up plant" if it got too cold in my garage and I rooted it in my Heliamphora terrarium. I would say that bagging it up in sphagnum and keeping it in an air conditioned room would be your best bet for survival.
