    I don't have a picture, but it was described as basically peeling a leaf off all the way down to the base of the bulb or rhizome, where you can see the white part. Does that make sense?

    You cant do a leaf cutting/rooting on a sarr.You have to do a rizome division.On a vft,you just pull the leaf down till it rips off,taking part of the rhizome with it.plant it in some peat/pealite or spagnum moss and put under lights and keep humid.Only plant the white rhizome part of the leaf.

    Hey Kirk, as far as I know, you can't really take sar cuttings (only divisions of the rizomes...rhisomes? .... ri...oh, forget it....I can't spell worth a lick...you know what I mean, the bulb ). However there is a very good article in the articles section by our very own Wildbill about VFT leaf cuttings. I've used the method myself.
