    I took 3 D. falconeri leaf cuttings back on September 9th, and after a few weeks on the heating pad, they looked like they were getting cooked alive, so I removed them from the heating pad onto another shelf with the rest of my Drosera.

    I gave it about a month on the shelf before giving up on them. Of course, I try to adhere to the motto of "never give up on a plant" whenever possible, so instead of throwing the cuttings out, I placed them on the floor "out of the way" with some of my plant supplies.

    Today, I "found" these cuttings again. They are floating in RO water btw, that's the method I use. And to my suprise there was a nice green 1/4" diameter falconeri plant, and another 1/8" plantlet! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I can't repeat what I said that very moment on this forum

    So please, anyone out there with cuttings... a place on the floor with little light is better than the trash can, even for Woolies!

    No camera today, so I can't post the pic. Here's a photo of the parent plant though

    Wow...beautiful plant Homer!

    Its too bad falconeri isn't more available. Lots of people would love to have that one in their collections. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Great job on cuttings. I had success with that method with D. slackii.

    Hi Homer,
    Great job! 2 D. falconeri strikes! How's that for a pleasant surprise when you're not expecting it?

    I think JanW is on to something with his propagation method - bright light isn't necessary. I know my 1st large scale effort was with over 100 leaf pullings from more than 9 different plants in high heat (103-105*F) and high light. Zero strikes!

More recently - got 5/6 strikes with a green D. petiolaris following (or trying to follow) his directions.

    Now - where's the pics [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    All the best,

    Hmm, I thought high heat was the trick to these woolies? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    Now I'm confused. What was so different in your setup to get zero strikes to 5 out of 6? The lack of light?

    The camera's at work. I pulled about 6 more cuttings last night.. hopefully there will be more falconeri in the future, then I can trade/sell them away [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I really hope there will be more plants. Keep me in mind for when they come around!
