What to do with growth points?

by Eatinbugs » Fri Aug 10, 2018 1:15 am

To make a long story short, I had a Ramispina vine that I made cuttings from. I left the woody and dead looking bottom part of the vine in it's pot and it formed a new growth point at the bottom that is growing fast. I was gonna cut off all the rest of the dead vine until I noticed two more growth points starting to form towards the top. They are formed at two leaves that are next to each other so they are only about two inches apart. I was thinking about cutting them and leaving an inch of stem on each side and planting the stem horizontally? Anyone have any advice?

I'd just leave it alone, for now. N. ramispina seems to frequently activate multiple modes like this, and you can always separate one later to root it like a basal.

I guess I can just let them keep growing for now. I've had better luck rooting basals than cuttings anyway.
