    Cut it off at the soil level. If you cut off part of the stalk sometimes it starts growing out the side of the remaining stalk in several places and you get funky looking branching. The roots will put out one or more offshoots. The old growing point may or may not root. No harm in trying.

    Ah, a few different ways to experiment with propagating, I love experimenting . Once I establish the leaf cuttings that struck, I'll get to playing around with the taller, older stalk. Thanks for the tips fellas!

    i love this species. i thought i would have much more difficulty growing it than i actually did but it's about as easy as any other african sundew. they grow too fast for my liking though. i have two plants right now with over ten inch stems which are supported by sticks. they are from the tops of my original plants which i cut off and replanted in the same pot.

    i also have another pot with several plants in it that were started from leaf cuttings. so far they are growing much slower than the others but im sure thats just becuse they havent established a large root system or thick supporting stem

    beautiful plant
