Hi guys. Two months ago I cut a drosera capensis alba's stalk and put it in water. I have checked it today and I have got like 4 or 5 new plants. The problem is that I don't know what to do with them. Shall I place them in soil? Leave them in water until they have enough roots? I would appreciate if you can help me with this. Image

Fill a pot with a 1:1 Peat:Sand mix. Lay the flower stalk on top of the medium. Sprinkle a little Peat/Sand over the base of each baby Drosera where it grows out of the stalk. Sprinkle a little Peat/Sand mix over the flower stalk. Cover the pot or put the pot in a Ziploc bag to keep humidity high. Put in bright light but away from direct sunlight. After 1 month, the roots should be developing. Start to open the bag a little at a time to acclimate your plants to regular humidity.

My 2 cents worth.
