    Yes, it does weaken the plant, which is why you should only do it with healthy plants. Personally, I think you may also only want to try older leaves as they are likely to die soon so might as well try to get another plant out of them.

    Personally I wouldn't recommend doing a leaf cutting on a new plant, especially one that is recovering.

    would the trap cuttings work if the traps were starting to die?

    I don`t think so the trap wouldn`t have enough energy to work.

    You know what's funny.

    I have a small VFT in ouside and one night the first night out a critter bit a small trap off. But the trap layed in the LFS.

    I just checked and I got some small growth going on under the plant. Cool.

    I'm gonna try this in the middle of summer, when the plan is in full photosynthetic swing (that way it'll have alot of energy). Then i'll plant it and see what happens! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    This makes me wonder if you could do cuttings of other CP's like this. I'll take the leaf on the top of a pitcher plant or nepenthes, stick it in the ground, and I might end up with another plant! Maybe I could take the hairs on sundews and grow plants. For the VFT, I would take the trap and cut down the middle so that the lobes are seperated. That might be the way to get two plants. Does anybody have spare plants that they want to dedicate to science?
