    Mine has produced numerous plantlets and the plantlets have sent out roots. How does one separate the plantlets without butchering the mother plant? I ended up using scissors, cutting off the leaves containing the plantlets. I don't think the mother was happy with me.

    I typically wait for the leaf they are on to rot away. Then they will have a small root system and the mother plant will be happy too.

    I agree with SF. Wait until the mother leaf starts to rot away and then gently remove the plantlets. Seems like when they're ready to go all it takes is a gentle tug.

    Thanx guys! Nice pic. Looks like I didn't wait long enough. The mother leaves were definitely going - but they weren't gone. Live and learn!
