    Read closer, Jim. He is talking Mexican butterwort. The fellow who started this post did not mention where it came from, or species. Temperate pings do well under the method you describe. I don't do Mexican pings, so they are no doubt different from temperates. Your method works for me too. Damp, not soaked!
    BTW. What's a butterwork? LOL!

    But Mexican butterworts are what I have been propogating by this approach. I'm just employing what a couple others have prescribed and it works. I don't bury the white part; I kinda anchor the leaf with it, since it is slightly curved.

    I'll be darned! And I use it on temperates too. Still, we don't know what species he had.

    True, we don't. I have also had success by placing leaves, again Mexican, right next to the parent plant (a la Capslock), but some have rotted away. Someone sent me a P. 'Aphrodite' that was in flower and all its leaves arrived scattered from the center. So I placed all leaves and the flower stalk in the media. After now having replanted all my pings and Utrics, I see that I have 4 new plants, including the one from the stalk. Those were all embedded in the media, without covering. At least one leaf rotted away, but not before producing a plant first.

    I used the method you described Jim, when I took cuttings of my P. laueana P. emarginata (?). From the seven leaves I started with I ended up with 15 plants. I think you may be right about having the moss too wet causing cuttings to rot. I also have a ceph cutting going in the same bag and it's doing well.

    And the potosciensis you sent me 16 months ago is the one that is now sending up a flower stalk! All the rest are still alive and perhaps they will follow suit, soon.

    Here is a picture of my Butterwort. It is currently outside as the weather is getting nicer.

    Is there any hope for growth?
