    Brie,
    Do you think submerge in water works for other Droseras or not? Thanks.

    Do you mean root cuttings? Alot of drosera will sprout from root cuttings but not all.. Check out Growsundews.com, he talks about propagation with each species. Root cuttings, leaf cuttings, etc.

    Great propagation thread Brie! I was amazed at how fast root cutting take hold with D regia. It is a wonder why this species is so rare when it is so easy to grow..Whether from seed or cuttings. Maybe more people will be more willing to take on root cuttings after seeing this thread.

    I can say this technique works for both seed grown D. regia and D. regia 'Clone C' Bainskloof RSA. I have a third D. regia with no data, it works with it as well. I have found with root cuttings it's not necessary for them to be kept so wet (though either way works well). I use small zip lock bags with LFS. I hydrate the LFS well but don't have it sopping wet. I add the root cuttings, about 1/2" segments or so, and mix them around in the LFS in the bag. Zip it up and place it under lights. In a few weeks I have growth. I'm currently doing an experiment using leaf cuttings in very wet conditions. I can say for certain my dryer technique that I use for roots, does NOT work with the leaves. They turn black within a matter of days. So far it's been about a week. Only one out of the four leaves has started to partially turn black. The other three still have dew and look healthy. I have the water line right up to the cuttings which are resting on a bed of LFS and I have the container covered. I believe I'm using the seed grown regia leaves, would have to check the tag to verify.

    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Good luck crystal. I used a similar method with success on leaf cuttings last yr. Sounds like yours will take as well.

    Thank you Z! I'm happy to hear you have had success with it.
