Either way works. I've had great success just cutting a 2-inch section of leaf, and laying it on some peat/sand. I put a pinch of peat over the ends, and that's it. After a while little plants start springing up from it. In my experience, it's an easy one to make cuttings from.

If you are primarily interested in cloning binata, I have found root cuttings regenerate very easily. Simply chop the fleshy binata root into 1-inch segments and put them on sphagnum or peat, lightly cover them, and shortly you will have lots of plants.

Root segments work well with D. regia also.

Hey, frankly I'd listen to BobZ. He has more experience than any of us, though I think both methods work, as well as the glass of water method. When it comes down to it, most drosera are pretty easy to propagate.

Its works perfectly in RO water too, just enclose the leaf cuttings in a transparent pot (Masson type are perfect) close the lid, place it under light and wait. Most fungal attack are decreased this way, and it's a pretty lazy technique ;)
