Subject: Leaf cuttings will not work!!!

Hi all,
I have tried so many times to propogate my plants by leaf cuttings. I
took very many leaves (leaving some of the petiole on) of all my sundews
(such as adelae, capensis, aliciae, and D. filliformis tracyi) and my
VFTs. I laid them all on a bed of sphagnum moss. Nothing happened -
everything finally turned black. I also tried floating some D. capensis
and D. adelae leaves on top of pure water. Nothing happened.
What can be wrong? I've tried leave cuttings many times and nothing
