Ludisias display some really unusual rhizhomaceous growth in terraria, and mine constantly put off roots above the soil level. If you can find a place to cut where you are sure there is some root and leaves on either side, you can be pretty certain that your offset will do well in a terrarium.

I have even had growth from a small fragment of the rhizhome that was broken off by accident--it's still a small plant 1 year later, but it actually has leaves and everything. These plants are tough as nails in a terrarium.

Kyle,

That's exactly the type of strange rhizomaceous growth I was talking about--roots pop out all over and the rhizome crawls out of the ground.

You could take a cutting from that Ludisia by cutting below the root that your retic is sitting on and planting the new division in another appropriate spot in a terrarium.

P.S.--That's a very healthy looking retic you have there!
