Try the standard leaf-cutting procedure. (Take leaves, put them
tentacle-side-up on damp peat, and keep 'em shaded and humid.) I did
this with my own "mystery Drosera" and ended up with no less than
six plantlets within a month. It also flowered from late July well
into October, and even the flowers that I didn't hand-pollinate
produced huge amounts of seed.
