    Contrary to what a couple of people have stated here, it is possible to successfully propagate Dionaea from leaves without any part of the white rhizome (as BigBella has already correctly stated). However, it is much more challenging to do and requires a fairly "clean" environment so that the leaf doesn't rot before plantlets start forming. For this reason, live sphagnum or long fiber sphagnum is a better choice than peat.

    Something really weird is happening with my leaf cutting. Most of the leaf is a disgusting yellow-brown hue, but the base of the leaf (near the soil) is now turning red down the center vein (or whatever the thing in the center of the leaf is called). I have no idea why or how this is happening, or if it's good or bad. I hope it's good.

    The rest of the leaf has long since turned yellow and black, but the part nearest to the soil is still green and is red down the center. WHY???

    It's dying. Not much you can do now.

    Oh well, at least it's making a flower stalk.

    What's surprising is that the base of the leaf (again, nearest the soil) is not only still red, it's turning even brighter red, and below the red, there's green. This leads me to wonder if this might work. It won't really matter if it doesn't, though.
