    ...and what's wrong with seed? Drosophyllum also have very sensitive root systems and die if overwatered. I don't think it'd work.

    SDCPS I thought this thread was about pushing the limits so i just wndered if Drosphyllum could be grown from leaf cuttings. If Magallan stuck to the idea the earth was flat you guys in America wouldnt be on this Forum because no one would have discovered it yet. Im sure the North American Indians would be ghapppy about that but I dont want to open that can of worms
    Can Byblis be grown from leaf cuttings?

    It's been a while since I last posted about this so was curious if anyone else has given this a shot? Wondering how much success others are having with it. From the chatbox, sounds like some may be doing well with this too.

    How are your babies doing? In 07.29.11 pic, you had more than 25 little plantlets coming along. So -- how did they do? How many are separated & growing? That was a huge number of sprouts for a species that doesn't reproduce via leaf propagation!!

    I've had much better luck with root propagation babies than growing from seed babies but haven't tried D. regia leaves yet.

    Another great thread debunking CP myths - similar to Aaron's D. graomo leaf propagation debunking. Supposedly D. graomogolensis couldn't be propagated via leaves either ...
    All the best,

    It's always possible the plant is 'Big Easy'. If you can't ID a cultivar by appearance how are you to tell?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    According to him it was not a 'Big Easy'. Though it could be a mistake... I doubt it, but it is still indefinite.
