    They're a bit more challenging to both extricate from the crown and sprout, but do-able.

    Yeah, like Jim said they can be tough. For example,last December I took about 40 total leaf pulling. Approx.20 from a very small (1/2" diameter) plant my Mother plant that is over about 1"diameter.
    I got maybe 3 tiny plantlets from the very small plants pullings and approx. 15 from the older plant.

    I failed to notice my timer was setup for only 11 hours from the last time we lost power from a ice storm here so I have bumped it up to 15 hours so we will see how the next bunch of pullings do with about 4 more hours of light

    What I find amazing that a plant that is an inch diameter in rest mode can expand rather nicely with its summer leaves.
