Took 5 basal shoots off the mother that were rootless. Used rooting hormone and lfsm. Should I leave covered in a plastic bag? Leave covered but remove bag for a period? Any suggestions id greatly appreciate. I have 6 nepenthes in total apologies but completely forgot the names. They're all growing vigorously one in particular has an 8 foot vine with 3 other vines growing as well and multiple basals with 5-6" pitchers.

Bag them for a month, opening the bag every day or two to exchange the air. After a month start leaving the bag open a bit. If the leaves start to wilt, close it again and wait a couple of weeks before trying again.

Along with that ^^^^, something I had heard to monitor growth was to make a small loop out of twine. Drape that loop over the plant so that the last two leaves are through the middle of the loop. This way you'll know where your starting point was, and you can easily see if new leaves are growing or not.
