    Does the leaf have to be alive? I was pruning my VFT and a dead leaf had about a cm of white on the bottom, can I use it?
    Im a terible speeler, but I are collage stodint.

    It never hurts to try to get a new plant from a leaf. Ideally the leaf is alive and you choose one on the outer part of the rizone then tear it gently off the rizone getting some of the white from the rizone (do this without yanking the whole plant out of the pot). I use a skewer to hold the plant back while I yank on a leaf else the plant can get pulled out or over by the tugging. Once you pull off a leaf you lay the leaf on your moistened medium and just cover the base with a pinch of your soil (peat/sand, peat/perlite, whatever you are using). I then cover the container with plastic and put under my lights (40 watt flourescent 4 footers). I am using one "Sunlight" and one "Daylight" in each fixture (GE bulbs). If it grows then great, if not I just chuck it and don't talk about it.

    Here's what I do-

    1) 50/50 sand and perlite (got sand from a hot tub place- its filter sand). Melt holes in bottom of container and sit in water tray (if container does not already have holes obviously).

    2) Use four foot flourescent lights. One GE Daylight and one GE Sunshine bulb in each fixture (have three lights as have three shelves). Not sure if going with both lights being the higher lumen bulb (the Daylight one) would be better but that's what I'm using and seems to work.

    lol! The other day (ok, so more like a few weeks back) I was moving around some sarracenia and I accidentally made a cutting of a VFT. The substrate is often VERY dry, but it surprised be and actually took!
