    Wow - this never occured to me to try. I've cut bunches of stalks and just toss 'em. Well now I know what to try next season.

    Awww.... leaf cuttings aren't bad. I find that live LFS, under an artificial light, kept moist, works well.

    I put most of mine in my terrarium inside. However, I did a couple outside as well, and they struck too.

    It seems to me that the length of the flower stalk wasn't very relevant. However, I got the best strike rate from the top of the stalk, that is, the 1 inch nearest to the flower buds. Also, I tried using flower stalks that had flowered and successfully produced seed, but I didn't have any luck with those.

    I wrote this up in the article about propagation of Venus Fly Traps on my website here:

    My success rate with leaf cuttings was about the same as it was with the top 1 inch of the flower stalk, which is about 100%.

    It is quite common to propagate with flower stalks, especially with VFT clones. A grower would not want to lose his B52 after flowering and get seedlings which are not physically identical to the mother plant.

    I went out and got a cutting of a stalk from my excessivly flowering VFT....I originally thought it was just one plant as it had a stalk when I got it...but it had 4 more growing yesterday when I nabbed the one stalk.

    I hope it works!!
