    I would love to, but my digital camera is a piece of junk. The macro setting doesn't do much good, so it's pretty useless for small things.

    I want to get the Canon EOS 20D... One can dream...

    I used one of those clear small plastic cubes that they sell VFTs in at Lowe's. I used it upside down, so the dome was the water receptacle, and the base was the cover. I added distilled water and forgot about them.

    1. I assume you sterilized your containers. What did you use to do this?
    Actually, no, I did not sterilize. In the future, I would probably use Iodophor. I brew beer, so I have plenty of it on hand.

    I ignored it. There was something there, but it didn't consume the plant, and doesn't appear to have harmed it.

    100% fluorescent lighting.

    I currently have one 'California Sunset' in the live LFS and I can also get more cuttings.

    Tre: The tubes are cleaned by the manufacturer. I am unfamiliar with the "popped bag" phrase.

    One can easily improvise, as Sarracenia Scott has. A glass jar w/lid or a cleaned peanut butter jar is the same concept. You can use your household items.

    Thanks.....it's nice for a worry-wort like me to hear that immaculate sterilization, daily water changes, etc. are not absolutely necessary for success.

    Based on how easy it sounds, I'll try this on my D.binata when it has a couple of leaves to spare.

    It happens all the time in nature, with far less optimum conditions even than what I provide.

    Ahh...60-80s...Cooked my leaf cuttings, I did. Try again in a cooler place, I must.

    Lights required? A cool and bright place...difficult here in Singapore! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Let me/us know how it turns out. I have the 'spiralis' form, from seed, cultivating.
