Awesome! What I like to do is bury the cuttings under the soil of the parent pot and I get a dozen babies the next week.

The buds are growing quickly, I should probably be able to transfer them to soil by the weekend.

They look good!

Please note, instead of keeping them that wet and adding the dangerous risk of mold, you can simply put them in a ziploc bag or humidity dome and keep the soil slightly moist.

I noticed something strange... my d.capensis cuttings seem to only put out 1 bud. I think next time ill cut them up into 1 inch pieces.

Yeah oftentimes you only get 1-2 buds on plants with short leaves like capensis. Threadleaf sundews such as Filiformis and Binata can sprout a multitude of leaflets, sometimes up to 8 or 9.

I was just about to post a question on this, but now I'll just hijack this thread instead! :)

How do you transfer them to soil? Do you bury the entire cutting and ensure that the new sprouts are sticking out?

I tried to plant it on top of moist soil, but it dried out. Now I've got a few cuttings sort of meshed together with sphagnum moss, but I don't know if it's doing the trick. (They're kind of just hanging out on top of the moss.)

Happy to get your thoughts!

Im not the most experienced, but I think you should push the leaf into the media, and keep the humidity fairly high. I think that your leaf dried out, because the environment was not humid enough, and the leaf did not have enough contact with the media... To summarize, I think that you need to bury the leaf in the soil a little bit, and find a way to keep humidity up (like cover the container with saran wrap). Here is the Sundewman video about it:
