    I tried c.l. on different types of Mexican Ping with good success rate, not too wet soil with little high air humidity in cool temperature seems increase the success rate

    I took a bunch of leaves a few days ago. Some are on slightly damp LFS, some are one the pots with the mother plant, and some are just sitting in a container with no media- all in a high humidity tank. I didn't use root hormone because of something I read at the ICPS website.
    What do you guys think?

    You don't need rooting hormone. You should get sprouts in a few weeks.

    Hi, maybe say around 70-80% relatively humidity.

    They work but I'd wait for winter since the summer leaves are very tender
