I know nothing about leaf cuttings, if you can tell me how to do it I'll gladly send you one. I was looking at your gallery, and fancy that D. paradoxa you have.
I better get that paintbrush out and get plant parts going!
This is how they really look, with a lesser quality camera:
Click on the Grow List link for variety! (except for pitcher plants )
Jims kicking my **** in variety anymore.........used to be i had him beat hands down but i cant compete even with his Utrics any more
you really want to see variery? look up Pyro's growlist some time or Jeremiah H.'s its a pain finding holes in those ones.
Sheridan - I'm still trying to get "blue" to flower! And I really think it was a tricolor that did - reniform leaves. I'm sending a sampling of the different populations to BCK, so he can look at them under a microscope. Yeah, Jermiah's grow list is insane!

LOL! I promise you... you'll have a learning curve! We all have. We have all killed some of our initial plants (if not all). But we'll talk ya through the basics, like water, soil, dormancy, light,...
I've done this hobby on a "shoestring budget". Never bought a plant online. I just respond to the Trading Post offerings and went through the patience of germinating seeds and sprouting leaves & gemmae. It doesn't take long to cultivate these plants.
I could tell more when it flowers, but for now I think Tamlin's Razor applies: "If it looks like it might be D. spatulata, it is D. spatulata". The species is highly variable. See if you can get a flower shot and some details on the scape when it flowers.

lol my growlist isnt impressive. 18 month ago it was decent, right now its easily managable. Jeremiah's is impressive and even more so when seen in person. doesnt take long to rack up plants. keep growing and stick around this forum and you will have most anything yah want in a few years or at the very least know who has it and who to sweet talk generosity even if its only giving away common plants will come back to repay yah big time
