Subject: Nepenthes - kekei paste


     Has anyone tried kekei paste (sp?) on the nodes of a growing Nepenthes
stem to promote new growth?
     I work at a Orchid nursery and we use this on orchids to promote
branching by gently pulling the hard coat off the node and exposing the soft
green part then applying the paste. This aids in stem branching and
I'm not sure about this with woody parts of the stem, but maybe on the
herbaceous parts of the stem?
