    I've had great success floating D. binata dichotoma and adelae in distilled water. At first they floated but with time all my leave sank to the bottom. Mine always took about 5-7 weeks before I ever saw any budding. Some I'd leave in the water until they formed roots. Goodluck!

    So placing the cuttings under your shoplights would not be a good idea? You want to put them where there's just a little light?

    I've placed most of mine on a windowsill but some had to go into the terrarium (under lights) due to a lack of space. I've had success both ways.

    No. But with time mine did and it didn't affect them. Float the leaves when you first place them on the water. When you go to replace the water some may sink. Just leave them. Hope this helps.
