ICPS is the International Carnivorous Plant Society and they publish a quarterly newsletter they is a cross between a newsletter and magazine. It features scholarly articles on CP as well as various other articles.

In a simplified view of Panman's explanation, ICPS is a carnivorous plant magazine.

Highly recommended. Carnies has very healthy plants! I got 6 out of 7 strikes on the leaf cuttings I bought a few months ago. Actually it should have been 7 out of 7, but I accidentally let one dry out.

Ignorance is not a sin, so I have to ask, what's the difference between a leaf cutting and a leaf pulling? I'm guessing we're talking about the same thing here if your "cuttings" have a bit of the rhizome still attached to the leaf as you would see in a "leaf pulling".

A pulling is where you pull the leaf off with tweezers or your fingers. A cutting is using a scissors or something sharp to cut the leaf off. It doesn't really matter what you say as long the same message still gets across.

Thanks for the clarification, just wanted to make sure that a "cutting" didn't require tissue culture and could be grown the same as a "pulling" in soil (lfsm) with light and high humidity as I've already had sucess with a flower stalk and a leaf.

Some plants like flytraps require pullings because they need part of the rhizome to be able to grow. On most sundews, the tentacled section of the leaves can bud. On petiolaris and pygmy sundews, they should be propagated by leaf pulling, because the leaf base is needed for the propagation to be successful.

as long as the vft leaf cuttings have a part of the rhizome I'm good with it - just wasn't sure if a leaf cutting and a leaf pulling both had part of the rhizome attached as I'm not prepared to start a tissue culture.
