Ping leaf pulling starting to produce plantlets. I was only expecting one plant but looks like a few are coming in. Can’t remember when I started this one but think it was only about 3 weeks ago, tops. Just pulled another leaf today.

My leaf pulling fried in the sun...I M guessing that is too much light.

That is where the second bog is...first one was taken over by the sarracenia so stickies go in #dos

Can pings not handle full sun or just not the clippings?

Yeah, my guess would be it just cooked in the sun. I’ve only seen them propagated indoors...usually in a zip lock bag or on sphag in a container to maintain humidity...as such, I’m guessing the closer to 100% rh, the better. Here’s a progress pic of my first pulling. 3 plantlets developing.

Update on sundew and butterwort leaf cuttings/pullings. Looking good, one sundew has really taken off!

Also, as DirtyCoconuts has posted the larges flower spike on the board, I figure I’d post the smallest. This looks to be some type of moss flower in the sundew pot.

For a forum dedicated to flowers it’s a shame the site can’t upload photos with more clarity. 😢

Those moss flowers are awesome. I noticed spikes in the moss mask thought no way?! And then I saw one with the flower. I could not get a pic. Too small and my phone was being a priss. Nice work!

Just potted up the butterwort plantlets from the leaf pullings. Hopefully they’ll take off.

How fun! After watching you and Coconut growing them, I finally decided to try again. Sort of. My daughter hates fruit flies, and I'm gifting her little carnivorous plants with a light set up for Christmas. I potted them up, and if I can keep them alive for the next month will probably try a couple of my own.

I'd been doing several things wrong in past (using potting soil with fertilizer, using tap water, etc.) Surely if I grow orchids, I can get this rolling now.

Awesome! Yeah, you’ll get them growing just fine. I can send you some sundew seeds if you like...just harvested a bunch. Haven’t tried germinating them yet but the parent species readily self pollinate and produce viable seed.
