I am interested in showing my kids (5 & 7) the possibilities of growing plants from leaf cuttings and sundews look awesome! They have enjoyed nursing their VFT back to health and feeding it the occasional snack of a little fly or bug. Would anyone care to share a few with us? I have feedback for non-plant related things on ebay and etsy. I could get the shipping cost only class size kit from another website( FTC is sold out of sundews), but I'd rather not waste them, we only really need a few.

I could take cuttings from my D. capensis alba, and D. filliformis for shipping. I could also give you a few small seedgrown D. spathula. I would recomond the capensis though becuase it is the easiest to take care of, but the filliformis could be treated the same way as a flytrap.

Also, i could send them already growing, would need to wait a few months, or just the leaves,

Thank you! Easier would be better, as we are very new to CP. I was looking at the water methods, do they work for Drosera? We don't have access to grow lights.
