    A leaf (about 0.5 cm) fell off the main plant when I repotted it. I left the leaf behind on a mass of sphagnum moss thinking it would just die off anyway. In 2 months, I got this. Btw, that is a 1 cm, not 1 inch. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]







    By the way, the "caterpillar" lives here among the sphagnum. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Of course it would grow as a "weed" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] ! You're right, if you'd try propagating off that small leaf on purpose it wouldn't have sprouted anything but mold [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] . Just pretend that you don't want it there and it will soon overwelm the adelae! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I didn't think of it but my husband suggested that I could have taken off another leaf and leave it on the same area. I did that last night and only to find BigCarnivourKid's "..if you'd try propagating off that small leaf on purpose it wouldn't have sprouted anything but mold..." this morning.
