    Propagation??

    What does everyone recommend as the best way to propagate sundew clippings? I've got a bunch of different kinds of dew clippings and I really want all of them to take.

    my greatest success with dew pullings/cuttings has been in straight water. just sit em in it, doesnt matter if they sink or float.

    I just lay mine on top of very wet Spagnum Moss, never let the moss dry out, not even a little.

    Here's an FAQ on the water process - although it appears that the originator killed the pics. For most common dews, you will get multiple plantlets per leaf. For some of the tougher dews, plantlet production will be lower. I believe Aaron has good info on propagating dews somewhere..... ahhhh, here it is...

    LFS propagation works but requires more vigilance as the LFS grows over the leaves and production is typically lower.
    All the best,

    Hmmm, maybe I'll try pure water, I only had about a 70% success rate.

    It depends. Some dews propagate very easily. Some don't. I've used peat and LFS to propagate dews, although I've had more success with the peat.
