    winter outdoor leafcutting propagation

    well today i went to the washington d.c national arboretum, which is a huge plant collection garden, tree orchid, vaggie, etc. i run in to some filiformis sundew i couldn't unidenified what type of filiformis it is, most of them went into dormency period, but there was dry up flower stalk and seed to collect so i can't help it but collect as many as i can, and also Sarracenia same goes with the seed collecting. not many for the Sarracenia course i don't have any bag or container to carry the seed, and ya my granny pulled a venus fly trap out of the media, i told her to put it back, but u kno the old folks, and ya so she carry it in her bag with no media, no water for 6 to 7 hours, the plant is like limpy and stuff, and some leafs peeled off from the rhizome, and ya i have successfully propagating leafcutting outdoor but i just want to kno if its possible to propagate them in winter or at least make it throught winter?

    Sure, you can propagate them any time of the year as long as you get a good pulling. I took some pullings from plants that had wintered at Home Depot. I think they had been in the store since the previous August and I bought them in March. I shredded them and put them in my terrarium. They start sprouting new plants and I put them outside when summer came. I think I have 30 or so plants now from the original 2 that I purchased.

    wow..stealing from the the national arboretum..
    very uncool..
    you pretty much suck..

    they might have given you a few seed pods if you asked..
    but stealing them is just wrong..
    and stealing the VFT is particularly low..
    not to mention illegal.

    By collecting all that seed you've stolen one plant for every seed you took...
