    Question sarracenia leaf cuttings

    Has anyone tried sarracenia leaf cuttings? I heard Barry Rice had success with purpurea and psittacina. Has anyone tried this interesting technique yet? I want to try it with a judith hindle and dana's delight. If you have tried this please reply. Please give the technique regardless if it worked or not.

    I want to try this too, I hear it only works with S. purpurea/psittacina/rosea? To do so you have to take off part of the rhizome too?

    Leaf cuttings from Sarrs?
    As in, pulling a leaf off, keeping as much of the white rhizome as possible, sticking it in the media, and hoping it takes off?
    I've done that. I've had success with Dana's Delight, Hummers Hammerhead, Mitchellania, Purpurea, and...uh... I forget what else.

    Nope, lol.
    I never did, anyway. It's possible special treatment may increase chances of success, as it doesn't always work (I recall a couple S. Love Bug pullings failed, I'm sure there were others).
    But all I ever did, if I had a promising enough pulling, I'd just stick the white part back into the media of the same pot as the parent, and sometimes new growth will begin popping up. Checking for roots is a terrible idea as that can make it or break it, ya know. If it's not dying, then leave it be.
    I live in Florida so the pullings were exposed to whatever weather the parent plants were growing in.
    I guess you can experiment with babying them as described in the article though =)

    Good luck!

    Awesome! I will need to try sometime! I thought it was only for those 3 and hybrids of those species.
