    I took leaf cuttings from my VFT. I pulled the leaf down to get some of the white part, 1 of the leaf cuttings has roots. I heard that they can grow from placing the ends in water. I planted the ends about .5cm deep in 50/50 peat/sand. and into the terrarium. Did I do everything right? For anyone who has done this, how long will everything take?
    Thanks, Joe

    I've made a D. rotundifolia cutting just by taking the leaf, and placing it on top of water in a petri dish. It sprouted baby roots within days. Does this work with VFTs?

    VFT sprout babies from the white part of the base not from all over the leaves like drosera. I've heard that you can also sprout young ones if the base of the VFT is in water is a petri dish.

    i place my vft cutting's face up with the trap cut off, on top of a mixture of 50% peat, 25% sand, 25% fine grain spag moss, and in about 3 weeks under lights they should develop gemnae like buds forming ontop of the leaf, the buds will grow bigger bigger and bigger and the open up and start spewing traps out left and rigth (tiny traps) as soon as they seem big enough to you, transplant the leaf cutting or just leave it in the mother pot unil you can individually seperate them.

    hope i helped

    Thats what it is !! I've noticed a round little green thing next to my Vft. It came when i was repotting it and cut off a bit of bulb because it looked like it was rotting. Now i know its a little Vft. How long will it take to grow a trap ?

    I prepared a leaf cutting of Royal Red VFT yesterday (illegal I think because of the patent, but I'm sure you can't copyright nature [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ). I'll let you know how I get on.
