Do you mean N. ventrata? If so, the seeds are not viable, ventrata only produces sterile seeds. That doesn't mean you can't try, but we got a bunch donated last year and nobody had any success. But we tried. But nothing. Some of us even sang to the seeds to see if that might help. Zip.
As to dividing the plant, you cut the vine, making sure there are three or more leaves per section, and put the bottom cut piece into moss. Leaf cuttings don't work. I have also heard that you at least cut any tendrils and pitchers off of those leaves on each section, maybe even cut half the leaf off. Perhaps someone else will confirm that or send me to my room for giving bad advice.
After planting the cutting, bag it to retain moisture, keep the moss moist, and wait. I got a rooted cutting from Shadowtski, and he said it took a few months to start to show anything. Then he sent it to me, and it took another few months to recover from shipping. But it will be ready to go outside next spring.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
