    On Feb 4th 2004 I took four leaf cuttings. Two I soaked in superthrive and two I didn't. Granted the light was weak for the first couple of weeks, but plantletts appeared from the 2 w/ST around March 20th or so. I now use one of those propagation containers you can buy about anywhere, filled with a 1:1:1: mix sand, peat, and long fiber spag. If you decide to use a freash leaf I've had the cutting live as long as three weeks before turning brown. I dont use new leaves anymore. Every couple months, or when I decide to clean up the dead leaves I'll find leaves that have just started to wither, and use them.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Is it possible to start the cuttings in distilled water like some do with drosera? I've tried, but they "dried out", even when kept very moist.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.
