    I like P. gypsicola. It's a very interesting plant.


    And about your Genlisea: It got crushed and then sent back to me.

    Thanks... what was weird was that one leaf appears tp have several sprouts. Am I seeing that right? The container of almost dry sand works better that placing individual leaves in various pots, that are more moist.

    Also, what was that recipe of grams of rust to mLs of water? I put a couple pinches in a container and mixed water and then added it to the trays. It was like blood, in that a little bit goes a long way in coloring the water.I ended up draining the trays and refilling.

    Well, I wouldn't know about rust since I don't use it, but it does looks like there are numerous sprouts originating from the tips of one leaf in picture #2.

    Yup, lots of sprouts. Never had that before and don't using rooting hormone either.

    Hi Jim. I often get more than one growth point from a leaf pulling - I don't know what determines how many. These take longer to get bigger than a single growth point because the leaf's resources are shared between them all but, you can end up with more plants eventually!

    This is my insurance policy. At some point I should be able to snip the plantlets from one another, right?
