    Warren,

    I believe you are spot on, especially with what I am seeing now.... do wish I had a backup before I started cutting on roots though, even with the sprouts showing

    geeze, im such a whimp when it comes to this plant LOL

    Glad to hear it pulled through for ya Butch! I had never even heard of D. graomogolensis until I saw one of your posts about it awhile back.

    This is what I would do on propagation:
    Wait awhile longer for the newly emerging plantlets to get a little more size on them. Try to isolate one that's kind of away from the others and attempt to gently remove it. Use some tweezers and something small to help you 'scoop' it up with the least amount of disturbance. I'd then clean the roots up with some rain water/RO water and start clipping. I'd pot the plantlet that you removed from the main pot up into the same media and make a third for the newly clipped roots. Then I'd wait a few weeks and see what happens. I'd even take a root or two and throw it into a ziplock baggie with LFS (this is how I get plants from most of my root cuttings) and see what happens. As along as you're careful, what's there to lose? Maybe one plant out of 10 and possibly gain several more from the clipped roots?

    Just my 2 cents .

    Wow, that is a beautiful species of drosera. I wish you all the luck with the plantlets and possibly some pullings.

    I can't say I've ever seen a picture of D. graomogolensis before. What a wonderful looking species. How many plants are in that first clump? Maybe there will be more that rise from the fire. Sorry for your loss, but I'm glad they are coming back. Hopefully they aren't random D. capensis seeds that invaded! lol. Another good reason to not throw out a pot of a dead plant.

    Agree w/ Crystal. Usually fairly simple to divide most plants w/ multiple growth points - especially if you can get some roots to come along for the ride. Sometimes it'll work even w/o roots ...

    Quite odd that water propagation hasn't worked for you w/ this species ..... D. ascendens did great with the method...
    All the best,

    I divide other plants regularly without hesitation... the caveat about this one would be trying to replace it. I must admit that like that security of knowing there is another in the wings if i fubar. Unfortunately, all my attempts at acquiring a second plant has been unsuccessful.

    xvart, as far as I knew it was just one plant... the multiple growth points appeared on their own about a year ago

    here is a pic prior to that


    its an awesome looking dew IMHO

    It truly is. The coloration is simply amazing, and I truly like the leaf formation/shape.
