RE: nepenthes cuttings.

Just cut sections of vine into 8-12 inch lengths with several leaves on each. Make the cuts diagonal and notch the end your going to root... Place them in a darkened vase of water or add rooting hormone to the notches and plant in Nepenthes mix and wait a couple of months for them to root.

RE: nepenthes cuttings.

To supplement, cut your stem such that there are nodes (growth points), little green nubby things are above the cut. I am doing the water in a vase approach right now, without Rootone, and so far so good. no roots visible, but the nodes are emerging. Changing the water out on occasion would be helpful.
