    Yes, Cephalotus can be propagated by leaf pullings/cuttings. The "winter" leaves are more commonly used (Regular, non-carnivorous leaves), but pitchers work as well. As for what media, whatever media your Cephalotus is in should be fine. And for how long, I'm not sure, I've never tried, but I think it takes several weeks. So as long as the leaf/pitcher looks somewhat healthy and alive, there's hope.

    What media is your Cephalotus in?

    Long fibered sphagnum, especially alive, is the best medium to sprout winter leaves.

    Actually I've had several sprout after the original leaf was rotted away. On one, there was a bulbous growth below the ground that had formed. It eventually sprouted some leaves. On others, the plant was developing a root system before it sent up above-ground leaves. I've had them take over 6 months & I think Big Bella had some take much longer...

    This has also been my experience.

    I grow mine in the following mix: 1 part peat, 1 part perlite, and 1 part sand. If possible, I try to add in extra sand.
