    "the savage garden" is a book on cultvating carnivorous plants, written by peter d'amato. it seems to be the bible of growing cp's. lots of good info. i bought my copy at border's, but any good book store should have it, or be able to order it for you.

    well, after about a month, i now have a baby vft growing. so far it's the only one, but i hope i get more (i planted 6 leaf pullings). in a few weeks i should be able to transplant it to it's own container, correct? or should just leave it in the one it's in now till spring? (it's in a 20 oz gatoraide bottle top, no drainage, in a zip lock bag, in the fish tank with 2 15 watt bulbs (1, soft, and 1 warm white). it have 2, 1-2mm traps on it right now. the whole plant i about the size of a piece of pearlite. it's so tiny!

    any other thoughts?

    peace,

    I was wondering how big your plants are before you start taking cuttings or "pullings." Oh and I know that vft are extremely intolerant of salts so I was also wondering if you guys used any rooting hormone or if that will kill the poor buggers.

    all of my plants that i used for leaf pulls had roughly 1" long traps on them.
    i haven't tried any type of rooting hormone, but i do use superthrive mixed in with the water (1 drop to 1 gallon).

    I brought this post to the front to tell everyone that both of my leaf cuttings sprouted this week. Tiniest traps I've ever seen!

    This original post got me interested, and I have seen people recently trying this method and this topic string may help some.

    Hey, Techno.

    Maybe the conditions were a little different with this one; who knows how humidity, light, etc.

    I have another one forming it's first trap. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
