    yes, barry rice did write an article for CPN... it was in the December 2004 issue. If I'm not mistaken he only got them from psittacina and purpurea but there could've been others I can't remember.

    actually I just dug out the article and the photo you posted is the same photo used in the article.

    I've got some leaf cuttings that've been going fro just a couple of months, I'll check if you can see the original leaf cutting and I'll snap some pictures if I indeed can. I'll make some more leaf pullings in the future and I can post the results with pictures as there seems to be a lack of pics.

    All of my older leaf pullings are mostly too far along. I decided to take a few more. If they take, I'll take some pictures of the forming roots and subsequent growth. Here they are as of today:





    I've had good success with two of the species shown, but with the third (S. rubra...) I've had not experience with in this regard.

    Does this show that Sarracenia can be propagated by leaf cuttings? or is it just roots from a treatment of dip-and-grow?

    Is that the same thing as SuperThrive? Can a dash of ST be helpful in this endeavor? I might try this with the purps, Dana's Delight, and flava I have.

    How quickly do these grow to maturity?
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    I've had good success with purp hybrids. I'm sure you can get those rooted. My pref. for media is pure peat, though sphagnum seems to work almost as well (I like peat holding things in place a bit more.)
    --Additon: A bit of superthrive could help, but I don't find that it's neccessary.--

    Depends. What size leaf you take (because that generally affects how much white rhizome material you end up with,) and type of cutting hold quite a baring. You can pull a lead (getting white material with it,) you can get a leaf with some roots, or you can actually take a chunk of rhizome. In my experience, after recovery (a few funny leaves) they work on increasing pitcher size as usual. Much faster than growing from seed, I'd say!

    Here's a thought: when dormancy arrives, can't one just sever the rhyzome at the various growth points and have a few new plants for the following season?
