    Hi Jan,

    Welcome to the Forum, and thanks for the post about your success in budding the D. petiolaris leaves. It is good to lay to rest the myth that plants of the petiolaris complex will not reproduce by this method. Well done!!

    Hi again,

    if I remember properly, Peter D'Amato said propagating this fascinating sundews by leaf cuttings would be the best method of propagation. So why is there such little knowlegde about it?

    good growing,

    Jan

    Hi, just a quick update:

    My current success rate in pure water is 15 out of 20 cuttings! I pull the leaves off the plant and lay them in litte jars full of destilled water. Then I put these jars in full sun and expose them to heat, too. Works perfectly !

    DO try this at home! After 1-2 months you will have LOTS of plants to spare!

    Good growing,
    Jan

    P.S. I edited the photos in my first posting in this thread, now there are 7 pics...

    Fascinating! How much more success with water did you have over the sphagnum method? 15 out of 20 is 75% success rate. Or did you drop the sphagnum method altogether?

    Hi,
    in sphagnum a great percentage fails due to lesser humidity. So I dropped that method. Use water instead and most cuttings will bud.
    Good growing!

    P.S. Keep in mind that I have only Dr.petiolaris and tried no other species of the complex yet...

    Hi, a friend of me tried other species:
    Dr. dilatatopetiolaris, Dr. paradoxa and Dr. petiolaris.
    All worked and he had more success in pure water than in sphagnum, too.

    It seems as if all the petiolaris-complex species can be propagated this way. So go and try!
