Flower stalk, division and leaf pullings. **WEEKLY UPDATE**

by jdoraz13 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 1:57 am

So I decided to try several different growing techniques over the winter lets see how it goes.
What I have is 1 cut flower stalk, 2 leaf pullings, and 1 division. I've been taking pics here and there of my progress and to share as a first timer.

the stalk was about 2 1/2 inches when I cut it, I had to plant in Peat/Perlite because of a delay in receiving my LFS
Image
Image
4 Weeks later...
Image

the leaf pullings came a week later once my LFS arrived
Image
and 3 weeks later I believe there may may be a callous/strike on one of the leaves I circled it (I know the pic is hard to see)
Image

And lastly an unexpected division that came when re-potting I decided to let it skip dormancy :shock:
it started out with 3 traps on it and is now up to 8 traps and 3 new growths coming in :D
Image
most recently...
Image

That's it for now... Hopefully I'll have some success and get some strikes soon.

Very nice job with the strikes! Hopefully the flower stalk will catch on :)

Thanks, I'm hoping the stalk catches too I've seen a lot of great growth from flower stalks on this forum... How long should I wait before checking the stalk below the media? I've read some people wait 1 month (which is where I'm at now) and others wait up to 2 months or more.

Thanks, I suggest trying it out it's fun and also it gives you more experience with experimenting different growing methods.

I haven't got experience yet (just planted my stalks a few days ago).
But I would wait two months to be sure.
Till then - NO PEAKING!! Just wait and see.

quick update my leaf pulling looks like its doing great, the flower stalk had some callous' on it so I put it deeper into the media and now it's the waiting game... very tempting to peak but I wont lol

Re: Flower stalk, division and leaf pullings **UPDATE**

***UPDATED PICS ON MY PROPAGATION PROJECTS***
So I had a flower stalk but ended up losing it to rot shortly after it started to strike :(
but I have had some luck with my leaf pulling and division a flower stalk started to form about 3 months
after this plant divided and has been growing fast.

this was taken at the end of January
Image

One week later after re-potting with the leaf pulling
Image

@ Three weeks
Image

and as of yesterday 1 month

Nice that you are letting it flower. I just noticed my first venus flytrap flower yesterday.

If you take a cutting of the flower stalk, and get a strike, is that considered a clone?

Very cool to see you have almost 100% success on what you have started. Anyway, how did your flower stalk rot? Did you water too much? Was the soil too wet?

So for the new flower stalk, I guess you wont be cutting for another attempt. Good luck yeah :) Nice photos too!

yep, that would be a clone, has the same exact makeup as the 'mother' plant

My vft cuttings did the same thing, but i think its because they went through a freeze (sadface)

thanks, I wanted to let the first stalk grow but it was to close to dormancy I didn't want to risk losing the plant since I am relatively new at growing VFT's

I was only misting it once a day, but the pot that I had wasn't great. It wasn't a tray style instead it was like a bell shape with a drain but any excess water would collected at the bottom of the pot... Now I know better.. And ya I'm letting this one flower should be any day now a few bulbs are starting to open!! :D
