    I need decent quality photos that can be used to show kids growth points so that they know exactly where to divide a plant. If anyone can share these (would be even better if circles or arrows were used pointing to the growth points) with me, I would be greatly appreciative. Simple tips on how to divide plants would be appreciated also.

    I would need permission to print off the photos and distribute them so please don't post a photo if you would feel uncomfortable having it distributed or copied or e-mailed or enlarged to be used on a tri-fold poster board.

    They have Sarracenia, Drosera, VFT, and a few Utricularia.

    Since everyone is out there dividing plants to send out for the NASC auction, would anyone who has a camera please take a moment to send me photos please. I really do need a few good photos illustrating growth points for St. Mary's School.

    The kids will be using any photos for projects in the classroom and the teacher will be creating a 3 ring binder to be able to save any photos to use as a future reference tool.

    Thank you very much. That's a big help. I don't have any plants that are large enough to be able to photograph growth points yet and I really need the close up photos.

    Now, you can take these growth points and kids could put them in a blender and after they are pulverized, the kids could spread the mixture out on top of sphagnum and the blender mix of growth points would grow a lot of new Sarracenia right? The kids would just have to be careful to get the entire growth point in the blender correct?

    Would the blender method of propagation work on Drosera and Dionaea too?
