    I have 4 of these, and am mesmerized by them. Please, what are several ways to propagate them?

    Thanks

    The easiest method is seed, which drosera filliformis produces quite prolifically and which in the right conditions germinates readily. I have heard it will do what capensis and binata do if you give it the right conditions.

    Drosera filiformis also propogates easily through leaf cuttings. This is the quickest practical way to produce mature plants. For more on this, go to http://epm-britt.ucdavis.edu/Savages/LeafCuttings.htm

    Root cuttings should also succeed, but this seems like overkill to me considering the other two methods work quite well.

    If you are desperately bored and have money lying around, you could try tissue culture [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I don't know of any other means, if you can think of any let me know [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
