propagate Sundew by leaf cutting?
Thread Started on 21 Aug, 2007, 10:23 As I know, Sundew can propagate by leaf cutting. Any one try it before? when plug sundew leaf, it is done by plug a whole leaf? or???

Thanx for sharing...

Below is the article from internet

Leaf cuttings work very well with sundews, moderately well with butterworts and fairly well with Venus Flytraps. This is best done in the early growing season of Spring. Cut off a fresh, healthy, mature leaf at the base of the petiole with a clean, fresh, single-edged razor blade. Place the entire leaf right-side-up on a bed of moist, finely chopped green Sphagnum. The lower side of the leaf must lie flat on the Sphagnum. You can do this by placing a single layer of cheesecloth over the leaf or by pinning it down with toothpicks. Place your pot of leaf cuttings in the shade into a plastic bag or other high humidity area. Choose a warm, but not hot place. Plantlets will occur in several weeks. Let them develop their own root systems before separating them and planting them in a CP soil mixture. Slowly acclimate the new plants to their normal growing conditions. Leaf cuttings also can be placed in water to develop plantlets. This is especially useful with the sundews.

Reply #1 on 21 Aug, 2007, 12:28 hey there Casey...

yes, propagation by leaf cuttings work. it works for most sundews except d.regia & d.burmanii i`m told.

you can just snip or cut the leaf off cleanly from the mother plant & place it on moist/ wet spag moss and keep it covered within a clear plastic container and put in a bright area. no direct sunlite until the plantlets appear.

if you are asking about any specific sundew , then do let me know & i or someone else in the forum can try to advice accordingly.

cheers...

Reply #4 on 21 Aug, 2007, 21:37 tried propagating d. adelaea in water.... took me about a month to see the result... d. spatulata cutting was tried at the same time, until now nothing happens... so it varies between species you're trying to propagate, i guess...

Reply #5 on 22 Aug, 2007, 8:33 Casey: it takes about 2-3 weeks for the plantlets to show up. place the cutting in bright light but no direct sun. only after the plantlets appear can you slowly introduce to sun.

happy trying....

Re: propagate Sundew by leaf cutting?
Reply #10 on 22 Aug, 2007, 15:35 Casey, I usually cut the leaves and put them in clear disposable plastic containers with tap/distilled water. They are place in a bright and cool place and left there until the leaves start to produce the offshoots. It usually takes about 2-4 weeks depending on the species. If any of the cuttings turn brown, remove it and change the water to prevent fungus growth on the rest. Link to Post - Back to Top Loggedartificialive

Reply #11 on 23 Aug, 2007, 11:37 Bifurcatum: what species did u propagate on the wet tissue?

Is it important to pluck the drosera leaves to the petiole for propagation? It is important for VFT leaves because the white base is where the plantlets will emerge. What about drosera? The plantlets will emerge at the edges/ sides of the leaves, not from the base.

If it does, I`ll just let it.... Link to Post - Back to Top Loggedartificialive

I got 2 D. indica that growing (at last) in my garden. Will try it and update here. Probably need to wait for 2~4 weeks only do the trying, because, the plant is still not so big yet.

Thanks KC for the reply. Maybe the others that have tried it haven't seen the new question post. Appreciate it KC if you can update for Indica and if ever other droseras that you have. I have only 2 Indicas and I am not ready to do any cuttings yet because I haven't received any confirmation that it will work and they are precious to me as they are seed grown, seeds courtesy of friends in this forum.

I can confirm that Binata and Filiformis will form plantlets from leaf cuttings, I have personal experience. Maybe we should really update this topic with all the drosera leaf cuttings that we all can confirm to be sucessful.

TTFN

I have done alot of leaf cutting with capensis, spatulata, binata, curviscapa, aliciae, madagascarensis, filiformis. I tried with villosa and pygmy sundews with no luck but it can take a couple of goes to get the conditions right.

I going to try and do stem laying on rupicola this season to see if is possible to form new tubers this way.
