    take a look at this!
    S. Rosea!

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

    Sarracenia are easily propogates by leaf cutting. They're actually quite extrordinary at it. I had a year old stub of a leaf connected to a rhizome with no green on it actively growing and creating roots, a little more time on the rhizome and I can pluck that sucker off and have a new plant.

    That's what I said alright! It's that simple. Just pull a leaf, get a little bit of white rhizome of with it (doesn't need to be much) and you're golden.

    It's pretty much the same idea as propagating most stem- or rhizome-growing plants (Pings, VFTs, stemmed succulents, Philodendron all come to mind...) Like so. Still, I don't see much about this with Sarrs. I think I've heard of it happening, but never saw a picture. It's nice of you to share. I'll have to start experimenting with my pulled leaves...

    The process can be slow though. I have a lump of S. minor rhizome with old leaves on. Most of the old growth has now died, but it has managed to grow a new phyllodia over the last couple of weeks. I uprooted it to have a nosey, but there is no sign of any roots. It has been rootless for 6 months now, but is alive and capable of growing upwards, but not downwards yet it seems!

    Didn't Barry Rice write a CPN article on this (Sarracenia leaf-pullings)? IIRC - for unknown reason, some species tend to work better than others...
