I am trying some now. I have never succeeded intentionally. Last time I tried, I put the leaf on 1:1 peat: sand and the whole thing rotted (normal I'm told) but nothing happened after the rot (not normal). I think my mistake could be that I left it in full shade.

Now, I am trying sometime different. I am putting the leaves on shredded LFS with live LFS at the tip of the leaf. I put the whole thing in partial sun. I also have the container watered by tray method, with the tray containing superthrive water. If this time still fail, I have nothing to say.

Ah yoh. Understand Ebeyonder.
I also tried. Not much, cos no health VFT to try, not sure the TP VFTs sleeping or what. Only those which placed under full sun, grow well. The one under light, seem slow..

Any plan for another new try? Ebeyonder.
Anyone have any experience to share?

Yep I took a lot of leaves from the TP plants... until the pink venus like looking quite sad. Erm, hopefully I didn't kill it.

Well, think it's a hit or miss situation for VFT leaf cuttings, is that also the case for you Yihan? Not like most Drosera, where the cuttings almost always strikes.

Yes, Hong Yee - that's been the case for me. In fact, I've had zero success with VFT cuttings. Sundews, at least for those I have tried, have almost always worked.

Jeff, what I do is to cut the leaf along with its "stalk". I then lay the whole thing on LFS or peat or whatever CP mix one would use. Make sure there is good contact and the tentacles should face upwards, ie. tentacles are not in contact with the mix. Finally, the pot/container is covered with a plastic sheet to keep the humidity in.

If the leaf of the sundew is long, like filiformis or binata or even capensis, you can just cut a portion of the leave and then further divide that into smaller portions. Treat these as you would a normal sundew leave with the stalk.

Alternatively, you could just dump the leaves into a bottle of distilled water. However, the disadvantage of this method is that you need to repot later, and the leaves tend to rot if you forget to change the water. I've had some binata leaves sprout new growth but all rotted cos I neglected to repot.

I've left leaf pullings (traps removed) in distilled water. They usually sprout between 4-6 weeks. :flowers:/>

Thanks. Do you have a photo of your trying? It will be great for newbie, like me, to give a try.
