    Dew leaf cutting success.

    This past summer, I obtained a D. filiformis "Florida Giant," the real thing this time for those who know the story of my other D. filiformis unknowns. Just before the plant went into dormancy, I cut the last good leaf it had to try and propagate more and thought I would share the result, pics taken a couple days ago. I first floated them in distilled water, then moved to wet LFS when the strikes appeared and before roots formed.

    This is a pic of a Drosophylum flower stalk I cut and stuck in wet moss in mid summer to see what would happen, and this is the result of that.

    I have not checked in a while, but the last time I pulled it up, a few weeks ago, it had still not rooted. I am thinking about taking it out and putting into a regular droso mix to see if that will encourage root growth as may be too wet where it is at now.

    The 'Florida Giant' strikes look good and it looks like you will have lots of new plants before long. 'Nicely done. The Drosophyllum plantlets... So mysterious that they could even continue without roots. I wish you success in getting them to produce some.

    Awesome! I didn't know you could propagate Drosophyllum like that.

    I don't think you can, just got bored one day and stuck a couple spent flower stalks in moss as they were forming side shoots while on the plant, and they kept growing. I really don't consider it propagating as no roots have formed and I suspect they will die when taken out of the wet media, but worth a try.
