    I ran across an article on ceph propagation and was wondering if anyones tried putting a hole in the media near there ceph about 3 inches down to try and get a secondary rhizome to form?

    I was thinking of trying this when I got home, but my ceph is pretty small so I figured i'd ask first.

    i was thinking the same thing,
    seeing how they send up runners from the rhizome.
    my thought was , why not make a mote around the soil of my plant and see if it would send up a baby plant ...


    mines a bit small too.
    so i might wait untill it gets bigger.


    good luck if you do try!!!!!

    I'm gonna try it for giggles. Can't hurt. I'm just gonna stick a pencil in an inch away from the plant 3" down and see if anything happens.

    I'll let you guys know if anything pops up.
