i have a venus flytrap and i was told that if you pull off a leaf and plant it in a pot it will wilt and a new plant will grow in the pot so does anyone want any leaves 1 per leaf

That's quite true. Pull off all the leaves and pot them up. Once they have
grown a bit into a mature plant (2 weeks) I will buy them at 2 each.

Yes; but on the other hand,

or

Which was news to me. Not that I'd have much faith in the results from
leaves pulled off by somebody else and then sent by post, though.

I suppose in theory pretty much anything _could_ be grown from a cutting,
with variable results obviously. It was the certainty of the OP that made me
laugh, "a new plant **will** grow " vs highly variable success rate even
under exacting circumstances of light heat and humidity!

In my experience, the natural division that occurs is the easiest way
to get new plants.
