    I have a D. multifida 'extrema'[Edit: correct invalid name to Drosera binata (multifida extrema)], which I'd like to propagate.

    Any advice on how to do it best?

    Simply take a few roots, chop them into 1-inch lengths, put them in some live sphagnum, keep moist, warm, and well-lighted -- then stand back. You should have lots of plants in a while.

    Can it be done by leaf cutting? I'm not ready to transplant it yet.

    Scott,
    I've propagated other binata before by leaf cuttings with great results. Go for it!

    I've propogated 'extrema'[Edit: To use single quotes around a name signifies that it is a valid, registered, cultivar. Since this is not the case here the correct name is Drosera binata (extrema)] by leaf cuttings before. I cut a piece a couple of inches long and buried both ends, making sure that the middle section was flat on the medium. I don't know if that's the best way to do it, but it worked.

    That's the same approach I was taught to use for D. filiformis.

    Some binatas[Edit: corrected to; Drosera binata (spelling changes made to species names to indicate plural tense are incorrect, species names are formulated to be both singular and plural intrinsically)] are fincky when it comes to leaf cuttings (like mine). You may have to cut part of the non-cp leaf and lay the whole thing on the medium. But the cp part is the part that will grow more plants.

    Even flower stalks cut into pieces and submerged in a glass of purified water and kept in good light will produce plantlets.
