This article came into being due to bad luck of the author. During repotting the author wrenched off roots of plant’s lateral shoot, so he decided to make the most of the situation and use leaves of the roots-free plant to its propagation. Thanks to ideal growing conditions he managed to get relatively big amount of young plants in very short time. You have the occasion to get know how to successfully propagate these Australian sundews.

Pokračování vyprávění z 2měsíční stáže ve Švýcarsku. Minulý díl nebyl tak úplně zaměřen na masožravé rostliny, v tomto tomu bude jinak. Autor se vydal na mokřady známé především díky přítomnosti uměle vysazených rostlin Sarracenia purpurea, kterým se na lokalitě daří a v současné době je rozhodně nepřehlédnete. Špirlice však nebyla jedinou nalezenou masožravkou. Kromě běžných rosnatek se po chvilce napínání pátračů ukázali také zástupci druhu Pinguicula vulgaris.
