    Leaf pulling methods?

    Hey so I just got some leaf pullings and some are resting on a bed of sand and peat while I have some in a zip lock baggie on a damp paper towel.

    If anyone has any insights as to which method works best it would help me a lot. I'm trying my hardest not to touch them.

    Three are of the leaves are p. laueana, I'm hoping all three germinate.

    Bonjour

    I use just perlite or vermiculite (pure these substrate are very healthy , without trash) and a transparent food box with lid .

    I put the wet substrate in the box, I put the leaves for cutting above, petiole on the substrate, and then I close the box.

    a good light at 20-24 ° C and it should work

    I use a peat based mix (1:1:1 peat/sand/perlite) kept very moist and cover the pot with plastic wrap. I try to keep them in these conditions until they attain some size. I used to try keeping my pullings kind of dry but they were slow or unsuccessful

    Okay I have the ones in the pit in a small ziplock bag wasn't sure if that was a good idea but hearing that a cover it needed helps.

    bad for me, the leaf must be evergreen, as they are no bulbils .

    may be too hot in this ziplock bag

    Yellow is not good. as for the pullings, I don't think one has to be too sophistucated, except with P. gypsicola leaves. Just pluck the leaves from the base and place on media of your choice, with the basal part slightly embedded. Ignore for about 3 weeks. By then, you should see some activity.
