I pull the leaf just like I would a flytrap pulling trying to get a little white flesh from the rhizome. I use tweezers to place the petiole as deep as I can which usually leaves the bottom of the leaf laying on the sphagnum. I can't remember if I used rooting hormone or not. I'm thinking that I did. If I did it was just a common root hormone from Schultz Take root

Usually after winter Cephs have a lot of non-carnivorous leaves which are great to use. That's when I took all my pullings. The beginning of this year.
