    BigCarnivourKid,

    No, I can't say that I have tried seeds in just water. I have heard of people getting cuttings to root in distilled water,but I haven't tried that either. You really should try Dip N Grow Liquid rooting hormone. I'd say that I usually have 98% success rooting cephs with it. It also seems to make the cutting have multiple growths that turn into nice clumps.
    They will root without it, but it speeds up the process. Sometimes you can very carefully remove the leaf from the new growth and root it again.
    Later.
    Jeff

    I'll have to look for Dip n Grow. May have to order it over the internet. None of the stores in town seem to carry anything but Rootone and I've tried that on my Nep cuttings. It didn't seem to make any difference in how fast they rooted.

    As a caveat, many of us have experienced a "sudden death" phenomenon. That's what happened to mine, from the plant that Elgecko gave me, after 1.5 years of doing fine. Whenever "winter leaves" appear, I pull them and start new plants, as a backup.

    No sundews, butterworts or bladderworts?
    Do winter leaves look different that the regular leaves?

    LOL I have A sundew. I'm sure a butterwort and bladderwort will make it into my collection at some time.

    Ok. Does it matter how large they are becaue the Cephalotus I have is very, very small.

    Thanks for the picture jimscott - I appreciate it.

    You're welcome! I've always used a mature winter leaf, which is ~3/4" long. The plant may not have anything to use at the moment.

    I was going through older pictures that are being hosted on a different site and came across a picture of the Cephalotus plant that I previously rejected for the Photobucket account. So this is a pic from my collection, taken in 2004, illustrating winter leaves. Not so pretty as the one I Googled!
