    Is it possible to propagate this species through leaf cuttings? If so, would it be better to put the leaves on some media or chuck them into water?

    Thanks!

    I don't know about leaf cuttings. Mabudon is having his plants flowering. Mine seem to be producing new plants vegetatively, as older ones die out.

    jimscott- man, since we last "spoke" the flowering has gone all crazy- I have a window near my plants and the wind blows pretty strong.... both my plants are almost 4 inches tall and BOTH have decided to flop over in the least attractive manner, th one with the flowers worse than the non-flowering one....

    I am glad someone started this topic, as I was thinking of just trying to get a new colony from cuttings and lopping off the tops of the current ones and rooting them
    Is that possible?? like, cutting a good-sized top off and putting the cut part in water
    so far this is may favourite Drosera and I would like to have a little stand of them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thumbs up

    I started some D. madagascariensis leaf cuttings back on 3/28/05. Within 3 weeks new ones were sprouting up. I floated them in RO water, changing it once a week. They were very close to grow lights (fluorescent). I gently plucked the leaves, and got part of the petiole intact.

    best of luck,

    Homer

    Sure it's working for leaf cutting and I had try before.
    Just put it on the peat .
    But take care the temp..
    Best temp. is 20-24C. and put it under the soft sunshine.
    Temp. over 27C is not working.

    Okay... I think the extreme heat is what made mine flop over, it's been well past 30 C for several days over the past couple weeks....
    Guess I'll keep propping them up and wait for fall [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
