    Gingerly, yet firmly, while holding the plant in place, pull a whole leaf from the stem.

    Nope, 'cause as long as it's green, it's alive, and therefore use-able as a cutting. When you put your cutting on the soil, have it tentacle-side facing up, with a tiny bit of the end of the leaf buried in the soil.

    I've used leaves with and without dew, young and old and as Drosera36 said as long as it's green, it should be fine. I have had great success by floating the leaves tenticle side up in RO water. Every week or so I change the water. In the beginning the leaves float but with time they sink to the bottom getting totally submerged in water and they still produce new plants. Some of the leaves may even turn brown or black. Most people advise removing these leaves to prevent fungus. However, I've even seen new plants emerge from a black piece before. I've also had great success using Drosera36's method.

    I found that my lance leafs are very willing to make new clones. My mature lance leafs occasionally die but when they do they produce may more new plants from the roots below. Roots are also a good way to propagate lance leafs and I've found they take less time. Anyway, hope this helps.
