    Talking Propagation of Annual Sundews

    Yeah, so basically I was wondering if you can take like leaf cuttings of annual sundews, I know that burmannii cuttings don't work, but possibly others? I'm thinking of D. Indica in particular. Thanks

    decapitation has also worked with D. indica. cutting off the top half or so and placing it in soil

    How about a D. capensis? Can you get a leaf cutting of that and plant it?

    D. capensis is a perennial but yes, you can take leaf cuttings. It's best done early in the growing season. Snip the leaf off near the petiole and place it flat on the medium, tentacle side up. Use a pinch of peat or butterfly mounting pins laid across the ends of the leaf to hold it down. Leave as much of the tentacles uncovered as possible. Use a leaf that hasn't any bits of insect on it if possible to reduce chance of fungus growth. Give it plenty of light and humidity.
