    I tried this once with an oreophyla stem that had been bitten off, but it didn't work because I put it in bleach... I was 8
    I have never heard of a flower rooting itself so I would try putting it in distilled water.
    Are you trying to harvest pollen or seeds...etc please explain more so I can help.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I've had success with pinching off the flower scape of D. prolifera and nestling it in some living sphagnum moss. Keep in mind, though, that D. prolifera's claim to fame beyond carnivoroy is its ability to do this.

    if you mean dews (ones with thicker stalks like binata or capensis, if it's one with a wimpy flower stalk, give up) cut the stem into 1 inch segments and treat it like a leaf cutting and put it in water and wait (up to 2 months)
