    It has been close to a month for some of the flower stalk cuttings (the first batch were taken 5 May) and they're all looking good, with no loss of color or vigor; though there have been no strikes to date. Conventional leaf cuttings range from a few weeks to months -- even a year in one case -- to callus or root. We'll see. It even appears that one of the flower stalks has continued to grow a bit, since it was planted. Go figure . . .

    I'll keep you all apprised . . .

    Not yet . . .

    Everything remains green and vital looking since late May, so I am hopeful.

    The callus is a sort of mass of undifferentiated tissue at the point of the cut leaf; eventually either roots or leaves form, one after the other . . .

    Success!

    Today, I just had to uproot one of the several Cephalotus flower stalks (and stalk segments) that I had planted at the close of May and just see what was happening -- if anything at all. What I was pleased to discover was a tiny net of filamentous white roots erupting from its base.

    The method works . . .
