    The method works . . .

    finally!! That's quite the success story, I had a feeling it would work from other things I've seen Cephs do, but having solid proof is very cool, and you will have more experimental subjects to play with!!
    Thanks for the report, I've been thinking about this since you started out on it!!

    Thanks . . .

    I planted several stalks and segments back in May / June and all seem to be taking. As soon as I see some vegetation -- I didn't have an opportunity to get shots of the roots yesterday -- I will post some new photos . . .

    Finally, from one of the more modest cuttings I took from Cephalotus flower stalks back in May, there are now outward signs that the cuttings are beginning to take (I had already found some early rooting taking place in August). A first vegetative leaf is just visible . . .

    Here is a recent photo of a Cephalotus strike from a 2009 section of flower stalk -- the dried remains of which can be seen just to the right. There are a few others examples, though they are currently overgrown by moss . . .
