    I wouldn't bother until the plantlets are smothering each other. Then, you should be able to pull them apart. Even then you will probably find that you can't easily pull them all apart without risk of damage. Be prepared to let the smallest be sacrificed, maybe.

    Understood. They sure like it dry!

    BTW, these are all "summer" leaves, dispelling the myth that winter leaves are the way to go. I've been taking leaf cuttings all along, as I need them. Winter leaves may be easier to work with but I just don't see any real difference in strike rates.

    Jim, you're going to end up with quite a few P. gypsicola plantlets.

    How many have you counted?

    With these, you don't "count your chickens". They can wither and die pretty easily. So far there are 6.
