So this was my first time doing ping leaf pullings. I wasn't sure if i was even pulling the right
kind of leaves, or if the pings were big enough to reproduce, but i gave it a shot. I used the
method described in "The Savage Garden." I put pure, moist vermiculite on a paper plate,
then, using forceps, took leaves from the pings i just received from Andrew and placed them
face up on the surface. Then I placed the paper plate in a large ziploc bag which i inflated so
it wouldn't rest on the leaves. I put this a couple inches under my fluorescent lights. A couple
Esseriana; over 100% success rate:
The bottom right leaf has about 6 different buds sprouting up. Others have 1-3 buds.
Cyclosecta; 100% success rate:
Even the highly decayed parent leaves managed to produce buds.
Rotundiflora; 100% success (of 2 leaves):
I only took 2 leaves since the parent plant is very small.
When do you guys think i should move them to a more permanent locale? Also, should i attempt to separate multiple esseriana buds?
