Back in September, I cut some Drosera tracyi leaves that had fallen over and put them into test tubes filled with distilled water (on 9/8/19). I kept these under lights indoors. The cuttings seemed really eager to grow; they started shooting out roots while they were still in the test tube after only about a month. On 10/12/19 I planted them into peat. Here is what they look like about 5 weeks later:
I'm keeping these plants growing throughout the winter under lights indoors. That way they will grow larger in less time. Plus, I am afraid I may lose some of them if I try to get them to go dormant when they are tiny. Meanwhile...the mother plant is currently dormant outside.
