    Hello all, I have a question about this leaf propagation business. I think I've got the main idea of it, however, after you pulll the leaf down and expose a little white from the root, and after you put some peat moss or what have you over it, do you actually disconnect the leaf from the main plant, I'm assuming not, but how will it become it's own plant? I'm totally new and learning. Appreciate your time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    wintertime:
    what you are doing is pulling a "leaf" off of the plant ,using a downward pull, to get some of the white part of the plant. you then will plant this "leaf" in another pot. use a mix of 50/50 spag. peat and pearlite (i bought mine at walmart. it is shultz brand). give the cutting lots of light, and higher humidity, then wait. it's been 10 days so far, for me. nothing yet. like i said, i'm expecting it to be months...

    did this help?

    peace,

    Hey Guys,
    Couple of days ago I decided to join the crowd! I put the cuttings (right word?) In my jiffy pot seed germinating "greenhouse." The leaf has been in there for almost a week, and no rot!
    I also tried an experiment. Ever hear of VFT's growing mini-me's at the end of their flower stalks? There was an earlier post about it. Well, I let mine flower, and there was a part of the stalk that looked like it could be a mini-me. I decide to try to root that, too. We'll see how it goes!

    Technoracer, yes that was a tremendous help.

    Off to Wal-Mart I go. One more question though, say I decide to use a leaf from one of the ones that has a dying trap on it. Will this still work well? I hate to rip off a leaf from a really healthy big trap. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do though. A few more trips to the store, and I shall embark on the great procedure of propagation! (or forced plant reproduction)

    Yeah I posted saying there's a pic of a baby flytrap on a flower stalk in the book "carnivorous plants of the united states and canada 2nd version" It's a really good pic!
