For those of you that are members of the ICPS you might have read my article regarding propagation of D. capensis utilizing wounding and cytokinin to induce more prolific bud formation. For those of you that are not, if you are interested in reading it shoot me a pm and i'll email it to you.
Anyway, I am looking to expand this research to include more Drosera species. I have already completed a replication of this experiment using D. spatulata and I was hoping to include at least 2 other species before writing another paper. I have a few D. filiformis but not enough to do the study with. I would like to try to include a species that is supposed to be relatively difficult to propagate and a species that is supposed to be impossible to propagate via leaf cuttings/pullings.
I have heard that D. burmanii is difficult via leaf cuttings, but not impossible, and that D. indica is impossible to propagate via leaf cuttings. I have very limited funds for this research and I need enough plants to take 150 leaf cuttings by this spring at the absolute latest. My deadline for having the plants is February because I need enough time to finish collecting data before I graduate. Does anyone have any suggestions for species I could use for this? The plants must be able to live in 75-85F days and nights between 65-75F, so species like D. regia are kind of out of the question unless someone wants to donate enough plants for me to take 150 cuttings from
So basically, I am asking what species you all would like this experiment to be done with? and if any of you have plants you could spare for this shoot me a pm. Should the research yield mass amounts of plants like the D. capensis study did I would gladly share the plants back with people who donated. Thanks everyone!
