    Dionaea flower stalk cuttings

    Two stalks. They're etoliated because the stalks are kept buried under live Sphagnum in a tub under a greenhouse bench.

    'Cupped Trap'

    Nice! Is it laying flat, or is the picture just taken at a funny angle?

    Either way, it's always comforting to know that flower stalks can be propagated

    How long did it take for them to strike?

    I removed them from the moss for the photographs. They are more or less laying flat on the uneven surface of the moss.

    I inserted the stalks into the moss maybe 5-10 degrees off of horizontal originally.

    Mark: I didn't keep records. Forever. Most of the stalks were from April or earlier. Those were the only two cuttings out of a dozen or more that didn't either shrivel away or get moldy.

    And they said it couldn't be done.... No extra chemicals to induce this sprouting?
