    With the exception of D. schizandra, which I have never owned, all of the others reproduce by themselves it pots that are sitting in plastic containers filled with water (open tray method), at Southwest facing window sills. They have all done that for me.

    You can easily propagate them by cuttings. Just snip a whole leaf, tentacles and all, and lay it on top of the soil. Cover the ends with a pinch of soil. You should get some sprouts in a couple weeks. With D. binata, you can use 1 to 2-inch sections of leaf.

    D. binata is best by leaf cuttings, but they also flower and divide into new plants. What I was getting at is that with all the others are efficient with propogating through plantlets or seeds or clumping. But go for it! Let us know how it turns out. I put binata leaves in 50 ml tubes of water and they go nuts with new shoots. Same with putting them in live, swampy LFS.

    How much of the leaf is needed to propogate sundews? I know with VFT you try to pull some of the white rhymizome with it. So how far down do you cut the leaf? Thanks!

    No, you don't need any rhizone or stem or anything for sundew cuttings. With the smaller sundews I use the whole leaf because it's just not that big. I'd use the whole spatulata leaf, but you can still just cut it where it's easy to cut.
