    what if the leaf pullings dont germinate? I'm really wanting them to germinate. I dont have access to these sorts of leaves, I was super lucky this time around.

    'What if they don't take?' They'll just get brown and shrivel up and die, you'll know. Really you do just have to wait, there's not a whole lot to adjust. I put mine on a bed of chopped sphagnum in a regular pot in a tray- I use the little clear plastic dome with a hole in the top that came with my smoothie some air flow, good humidity; they're just in my regular cp set up where the mother plants grow, so good light and temps. I have some p. laueana pullings that I just put out, so we'll see..good luck!

    One of the pullings started to curl and there was a brown spot on it... thought it was going bad... two good ones left... Praying for one of them to germinate... I should have took more pullings I feel so stupid for not doing so.

    Leaf pulling shouldn't die that fast if conditions are ideal. Did you pull the non-carnivorous leaves?

    Yeah but I was starting to see the veins and cell boxes of the leaf.... this si my first time ever doing leaf pulling so I may have pulled off a bad leaf.

    Yeah, take as many as you can without setting back the mother- I've always felt a little healthy stress can do a lot for a plant, as long as it's otherwise stable in good conditions. I went back and pulled the rest of the succulent leaves off that laueana after reading this, I'm glad I did!
