    i am quite successful ,all i do is place the leaves normal side up in wet sphagnum and put on a clear cover to keep humidity high and let the light in,seem to do well in good light,no fancy stuff at all

    I have never treated Cephalotus pullings with anything, I just stick the bottom end in one of my live Sphagnum cultures and ignore it for a few months. 90% of them result in viable plants, without any fuss.

    Untreated leaves and pitchers I place around the side of a plastic pot of live sphagnum. Rooting of both types is very high.

    Well, I've only tried one cutting and since it was a flower stalk from an HG, I gave myself better odds by dipping it in a rooting solution. Been nearly a month and still alive but no roots yet. I don't know if I really did it properly though. I just stuck it into some loose LFS and perlite and didnt cover it since my terrarium humidity stays well over 50%.
