I've had 2 leaves in LFSM since May. The bigger leaf died and the smaller one still looks good but no signs of activity above ground yet. Seems you need a LOT of patience starting these!

I've got a leaf that has been in sphagnum for a few months also. The leaf looks fine but there is no growth to be seen.

sure I'll take some pics when I get home. They're not very impressive yet though lol.

need to make sure you get part of the rhizome too. I ride my hand to the base and pull downwards to peel some off. I say that because I kept a leaf alive like that too but it didn't have the means to grow anything so it stayed. mine struck in about a month. idk if fertilizer is a factor

Here's a pic of the most defined one. the pitcher cuttings are different. I could see the roots but nothing really on the surface yet. I read they can take a long time
