WELCOME!!! A BIG welcome! NEVER feel stupid asking a question on this
list, we all are constantly learning, and all of us can be VERY stupid at
times! The only stupid question on this list is the one NOT asked, as then
we learn nothing from it!!!
I distinctly remember an article in an OLD Aroideana by my dear friend the
indomitable Craig Phillips, husband to that treasure Fanny Phillips, both
founding members of the Aroid Society. The title was something like-- 'The
thing that would not grow (or die either!)', and was about one of this group
that he, despite all his best methods and efforts, could NOT get to grow, it
languished for a couple of years, and never sprouted! So maybe some one on
our L will come in with a more scientific reason as to the 'whys' of these
certain species refusing to grow from cuttings! I will try to check the
article when time permits. I presume you have used a rooting compound, and
treated the cuttings (perhaps even soaking the cuttings for a couple of
hours in this mixture) with 'Superthrive'? This can sometimes stimulate
Cheers, good growing, and good luck!
>Ok, I will quit lurking and introduce myself as well!!! My primary aroid
interests are unusual Anthuriums first and foremost, and to a slightly
extent Philodendrons, and other vining or epiphytic aroids. I would be very
interested in any sources of unusual Anthuriums for sale or trade - seed,
seedlings, cuttings, or plants
I have enjoyed being a lurker on this list for a few months now, and have
learned a lot. The recent discussion of the identity of the Fairchild
Monstera/Rhaphidophora has been very interesting. I have seen this plant
at Fairchild and I was fascinated with it.
I feel stupid asking this question, but I need to know if I am overlooking
something. A while back I recieved cuttings of Epipremnum pinnatum from a
friend and all attempts to root them have failed. Some philodendron cuttings
rooted at the same time under the same conditions rooted fine. I have tried
various media (soil, perlite, water), with no results. The stems are now
starting to look dessicated, even the ones in plain water, but they are not
rotting. I have rooted many cuttings of Philodendrons, Monstera, Syngonium
E. aureum with no problems and this is really bugging me. Just wanted to
there was some special requirement for E. pinnattum that I don't know about,
are they just a lot more difficult than E. aureum? Oh well!
