It's basically taking a piece of the mother plant, like say a leaf cutting, and putting it into a sterile environment within a babyfood jar, and feeding it with this clear jelly nutrient thingy, and it will grow new clones pretty quickly that you can replant. I don't know the specifics though sorry. But good luck! :D And you should definitely look through this thread for some great info: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1426

umm...you would need that BCP or Kinetin stuff and a bunch of different ingredients:
1/2 MS medium with vitamins (one half of a 1 liter packet or 2.2 grams). Most Tissue Culture Techs uses 1/3 MS for Carnivorous plants with great results.
2 tablespoons of table sugar (about 30g)
1 ml of BAP (1 mg/ml) - leave this out for seeds. It's even optional for explants. Dionaea explants will form callus without it.
1 ml of PPM
Agar
Distilled water
Vinegar and baking soda.
for medium to feed your baby plant, and you need baby food jars and buy these special sealing caps and a pressure cooker.
You should just buy the home tissue culture kit thingy http://www.hometissueculture.org/catalogkits.htm
