    Drosera Cuttings

    Hello,
    I was wondering if I could trade someone for leaf cuttings of any of the following:
    *I am also open to root cuttings* (edited)
    Drosera
    Capensis 'Red'
    Binata multifida
    Binata *dichotoma* (small red)
    Prolifera
    Venusta
    Regia 'Big Easy' *ROOT CUTTINGS* (edit)

    If you have any of these and would be willing to trade, please email me at aamay03@yahoo.com so I can get back to you sooner and I will send you my tradelist.
    Thanks a lot,
    Aaron

    Me ? No but in almost all cases there is failure for Regia leafs.
    Someone in CPUK or here did one with success but thats about it.
    The rest should sprout very easy though

    I have tried several leaf cuttings with D. regia. Unfortunately I have never gotten a single one to strike. I have used all the traditional methods and a few non-traditional ones with zero success. From what I understand root cuttings have a much higher success rate.



    What exactly is D. binata 'small red'?

    Cheers

    I would also suggest root cuttings, unless you have a reason to specifically try propagation by leaf cuttings.

    I have heard that Regia is terrible for leaf cuttings, but in this report (from William Joseph Clemens) at the International Carnivorous Plant Society,

    http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cpn...3n3p83_89.html
    (towards middle of the page)

    William Clemens posted a picture of some leaf cuttings of the 'Big Easy' that he started in water. I figured I'd try my hand at it, as i've had great success with leaf cuttings so far.

    Also, thank you Dave S.
    I figured leaf cuttings would be easier to get, but I am more than open to root cuttings.
    Thanks,
    Aaron

    D. regia leaf cuttings are very viable if they are fresh, but after going through the postal service they wont be very fresh... Root cuttings are the way to go.
