    I've had no issues with P. laueana from summer leaves. The winter leaves are so tiny i think it would be more difficult. I will say it's best to pick leaves that are not too old, and not too young.

    I got P. laueana to sprout from last summer (summer leaf), while paremt plant withered away. P. jaumavensis can also be challenging, both to ship and sprout.

    With the ones I've had, I haven't even used any bags or LFS. I just sit them in a pot and they start growing, it's awesome.

    I've done things both ways and I don't see a significant difference with success rates. At least with placing leaves next to the parent plant (Capslock method), you don't have to transfer a plantlet anywhere.

    Try putting the leaves immediately into a plastic cup or shallow plastic container, keep in a humid location, but never let them get wet, or even damp until after they've formed plantlets and been planted out into pots of media.

    Complete success. Summer leaves, Winter leaves, they all work superbly to propagate with. I have nearly 100% success dropping the dry leaves into empty plastic cups and waiting until plantlets form before I transfer them to media and grow them on.
