    I'm trying out the water method. This thread intrigued me, and I had some extra vine sections...so I figured I'd give it a whirl and see what happens.

    nice, im pretty sure the water method works and I wanted to do it because I could see the roots instead of the soil method

    Actually, the water method come highly recommended by one of the moderators on CPUK (Sheila). It's the transition from the water to soil that is making me a little nervous.

    hmm i wonder if a leaf on my capensis is starting to die and i rip it down to the root a bit.

    Will something like that work? I got a few capensis leaves that were starting to die that i ripped down with a little white and stuck in soil. they got no roots though so I don't think I did it right.

    Should I use like a hobby knife and cut off a few leaves and some stem? How long do they usually take inside the water?

    Capensis is easy to propagate with leaf cuttings - don't worry about getting any stem, it doesn't need it, it's not like a nepenthes cutting where the stem is what roots. With capensis, just take a section of healthy leaf - as little as an inch, and lay it on top of the peat. Put a pinch of peat on each end to keep it pinned down. That's it, just wait.
