    S.purpurea test propogate..

    I did make a test today, did smoothly cut off 1 pitcher with root attached on it from my S.purpurea. And after that I did place it in live sphagnum moss in a plasticbag. Check the two pics on how it looks atm, 09-08-28.

    Is this a technique that could work or have worked for anyone ?

    Pulling propagation is possible but not the easiest way to propagate Sarrs. Having read this in literature, purps are the best candidates for this type of propagation. flava, oreophila, rubra etc... reportedly do not do as well as purps.

    That may actually be viable! all you can do now is wait.

    I think this stands a good chance at striking because you got both rhizome and roots and are growing it in a high humidity medium.

    Keep an eye out for fungus, mold, and other goodies that will love the stagnant air and high humidity.

    Ok her is an update on my S.purpurea propogate experiment (: It worked mutch better than I could emagine even then I did have faith on it alot hehe.. Worked so good that even the main mother pitcher I started with is fully functional and not dry at all I have been checking the base place off the plant and I can count to 5 new tiny small pitchers forming and 2 off them you can see easy. For the record it have gone 16 days since I did make this leafcutting.

    Pic with main pitcher:
