Does any one know if Drosera Falconeri makes any clones on i

I ask this because most sundews I own will create another crown every so often on their own. I have had no such luck with the Falconeri. So I was curious if anyone had experience or insight. Also, if there is a way to word the question better or more accurate feel free to tell me. Thank you.

Does it form clumps vegetatively?

The species can divide, though it doesn't seem to be common. Leaf pullings can be done though it's apparently rather tricky.

Thank you,I figured it was most propagated through pullings. Division was the word I was looking for natural propagation. I was just hoping because I know wooly sundews have a low chance from leaf pullings.

This has never clumped on me, other sundews have.

I started with one falconeri two years ago and now I have 16. Mine divides just like a venus flytrap, or even slightly better than a VFT.

Unfortunately, I don't know why. I just set up a junky 10 gallon terrarium with a water basin heated by a fish tank heater with plastic wrap as the "lid" and a crappy LED on top. I feed them sparingly with MaxSea since I hate unwrapping and re-wrapping all the moist plastic wrap. I also remember I was told they rarely divide which is why they aren't so common, but my plants don't really follow that.

Also it may be worth mentioning that my pertiolaris terrarium is usually 85-90*F year round. In the winter time I give them a bit of a "break" by setting the heater on a cycle where it's off at night, so then they cycle between 73*F-85*F for three months.

I forgot what the official recommendation is but I usually just try to heat mine up as much as I can.
