    Cindy, the 6 pots to the left all came from one clump from a $3 purchase. Within a few months of purchase, and spooning plantslets from the perimeter, I was able to gain 5 more pots of them, while the original pot hasn't changed its girth.

    My root cuttings for my multifida extrema still haven't produced any plantlets. Is it the same as leaf cuttings, just lay them on the soil horzontially or do I have to bury them and will water propagation work. I think the roots were healthy, they were white on the inside and I curt them into 1-2 inch segments.

    I have had success by laying them flat, dew side up, on wet soil media (covered) as well as putting leaves in capped 50 ml centrifuge tubes, filled with DI water. I haven't cut them into segments, but others do.

    Personally, for one reason or another, the water method hasn't worked for me. I get better results putting leaf cuttings on top of wet soil media and covering the ends only. I have D. madagascariensis, D. admiriabilis, D. slackii, D. rotundifolia, and D. spatulata x capensis currenlty successfully rooting this way.

    I never got any results from leaf cuttings with drosera, only with pings. Even though I only have one ping techinally :P. My drosera leaf cuttings always seem to turn brown and i put little bits of lfs or perlite rocks to hold it down.
