    Oh, goodness…blender Sarrs! On a whim, I made a batch last week and I’m seeing sprouting already. I used a food processor on “pulse”, though, because I figured high speed blenderising would damage the cell structure in the leaves. So I ended up with chunks of leaves about ¼” square or so. Poured the mess into a small pot containing peat/rinsed sand mixture, put the whole shebangabang into a gallon size zip-lock and waited.

    There was a lot of pitcher plant left over in the food processer , so I added a cup of basil, 4 cloves of garlic, a little sea-salt and cracked pepper, pine nuts, some olive oil, and blended into a paste. VOILA! Pitcher pesto! Rubbed the pesto on some chicken, under the skin and baked covered in a 425 degree oven for 40 minutes. Yum!

    Oh all of this information is absolutely great. I am looking forward to assembling a "guide" for the kids that will include everyone's propagation techniques. It will truly be an invaluable asset in the classroom when the kids get ready to divide a few Sarrs they have this coming fall.

    You guys are all the best! Keep the techniques and photos coming! I've got lots of space in the new classroom "guide".

    PLease do not read into this method any more than whats posted. absolutely DO NOT under any circumstances bake what you plan on growing! heat is bad when the plant(s) are in this state.

    Well, I originally posted to get the attention of one person who refused to give me the satisfaction of posting in this thread whom I know is sitting back laughing his rear end off right about now. I had no idea so many people lurked in these seemingly insignificant threads or I would have never joked around like that. Sorry.

    Nobody who posted here has placed anything but spores in their blenders or their food processors.

    Well, I guess now that I have everyone's attention I might as well take the opportunity to ask for help again. I really am trying to put together a "guide" for the kids at the school. I'd like to have a few more photographs of how exactly to divide CPs. Actually anything in a visual form would be great. The kids don't start back to school until after Labor Day so I've got time on my side. I think they only have about 3 Sarrs that will need to be divided but it is a start.

    Any helpful pointers that anyone can add to accompany their photographs would be greatly appreciated.

    By the way, I about bust a gut when I read the Shake and Bake propagation tip. I laughed so hard my husband had to come in and see what I was laughing at.

    And April, your Oreophila Mai Tais sound great. I like those whoosie Mike's Hard Lemonades though so could you change that to an Oreonade please? An Oreoinfandel would be fine thought too.

    I was going with the potato/veggie theory [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    If you put out a chopped up potato or carrot outside in the warm weather it would rot alot sooner than in the fall where its cooler and would stay a bit crispier..... haha or somethin like that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Hey Laura I seen your post on the webserve, I will send you a bunch of photos of growth points that could be divided. Most Sarr's but a few VFT's. You should get them in the next couple of days.
