    hey i have a Drosera capensis and i want to make it reproduce more i have already separated about 8 small plants which grew from the roots...
    are there any other ways to reproduce it?
    and how....



    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I thought it was very difficuilt to do leaf cuttings with D.capensis?

    Wait which Drosera are you talking about?? D. capillaris or D. capensis?

    Hi,

    Leave cuttings work very well for capensis and capillaris. These are two of the easier species to propagate, because nearly everything you do will result in new plants. For Leafcuttings, simply cut a leaf off an place it on very wet soil with the tentacles upward. A few weeks later you will have some new plants emerging from the leaf. It also works well, if you just put the leaves in destilled water.

    For rootcuttings, you can simply cut a part of the roots. Drosea capensis is not very sensitive concerning the roots. Now put them into a pot and cover them with soil. Now you just have to wait.

    The simples way is still propagating by seeds. If your plants flower, there is nothing to do to get seeds. You will have an enormous amount of them. Fresh seeds germinate very easily.

    wezx,
    When you do a leaf cutting, make sure the leaf stays in contact with the peat. It should not dry up that quickly. To slow down the drying of the peat, just cover the top of the container with a clear lid or stretch plastic wrap over it. I like plastic wrap since the wife seems to get upset for some reason when I try to punch holes in the lids to her containers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] .
