    The white basal tissue at the very base of a VFT leaf is the best "reproductive" tissue. So you take a VFT leaf and gently pull downwards so the leaf tears off as close to that white tissue as possible. Toss the leaf in a bag of moss, forget about it..and in a few weeks you'll have plants. :-)

    Hey b.t.,

    Did you use a rooting hormone? If so, how did you apply it?

    I did the same experiment and had good results (12) plantlets and learned some donts.
    1. use lfsm instead of peat moss like i did.
    2. dont fuss over them to much.
    3. clip the traps, they tend to blacken and mold easily.
    this is a great way to get many plants if you have the patients.

    What is lfsm?

    I am guessing it is some kind of long sphagnum peat moss?

    He means long fibered sphagnum moss.

    It's just Sphagnum moss, not peat. Peat is decomposed Sphagnum.
