I've got some extra leaves to make cuttings out of, if anyone's interested. I've had pretty decent success rates (around ~70%) striking these by floating them in some pure water in indirect sun. Portions will be 2-4 leaf blades depending on how many people sign up, I can also chop up the petioles and put them in if you want but I generally haven't had much success with them. I'll leave the leaves whole, you can size them to smaller portions if that's how you prefer to strike Drosera leaf cuttings. These will be sent in moist paper towels with some padding. I also have infinite amounts of typical D. capensis that I can toss in, let me know if you want them (doubtful). Shipping is on me. Start the list below and PM me your address:

Wonderful giveaway!
I have a few leaf cuttings of D. dichotoma 'Giant' from Kevin but I wouldn't mind relieving you of some capensis. ;)
I've found (very recently) that petioles will produce less robust plantlets in more numerous numbers but at a slower rate than actual leaf cuttings. You just have to float them around a little bit longer! :-O

Sure thing! Would you like whole plants or leaf cuttings (less chance of hitchhikers that way, I recently found U. subulata in some of my capensis pots and I don't want to accidentally give anyone the equivalent of plant herpes...:0o:)

Whole plants, already infested with the subs. :-O Wouldn't be so bad if they would actually flower!

Hope you don't mind more potentially coming your way, then...PM me your address!

Anyone figure out how to make that thing flower? All they've done for me is make those ugly cleistagamous flowers...

I had it flower once in a closed container. It has never flowered for me outside but maybe because it was more humid in that container it flowered. Pretty large flowers too.

I'll take a few Dichotoma leaves. Whatever you're willing to part with. And, Why not, I'll take a few Capensis. I already have a few, but there's nothing wrong with increasing the genetic diversity. -- Thank you for the offer.
