    How does this work with a sarracenia purpurea? Use one of the smaller thin leaves, but a big small one... dip it in root stimulant/fungicide, and put it in an inflated peat pellet, in a dome? Has anyone done this? With success? Should I?

    no, you should not.

    Sarracenia reproduce by Rhiozome division, and flowering. Taking a leaf cutting will result in the death of the leaf. Sorry!

    Actually, it could work. A couple of years ago I had a sarracenia that I accidentally broke a pitcher off. It had the tinest bit of rhizome still attached, about the size of a pin-head, and no roots. I stuck it in the soil for the heck of it and it lived. I wouldn't recommend doing it that way though. I think I just got lucky.

    I did it last night anyways... It was a big baby leaf, that was not pitcherish yet... There are tonnes of baby leaves, and i got it down to were it attached, so wutever... If it works, great, if not, oh well! Heh... Is there anyway to promote the growth of a flower? I think that would be even more exiting!

    Parasuco,

    Only time will bring you a flower. If you are lucky it takes 3-5 years from seed to flower. Odds are that your plant was propogated via TC and TC plants tend to mature faster so you might, maybe, possibly get one next year.

    Maybe. I wish I could give you a more concrete answer but it is all up to the plant so... After being transplanted it might 'decide' to devote energy into new growth and abort any flowers. Or it might like its new home and go for a bloom. Just hope for the best and treat your plant right, if it doesn't bloom this year don't get discuraged.

    yes it does work, but you need a bit of rhizome as well, only a sliver though. cut the leaf in half to reduce transpiration & put somewhere humid.
