    Yea that's it. Keep away from direct sunlight. A windowsill is a good place. It usually takes 3-4 weeks, sometimes longer. Change the water weekly or when you see algae. I think right now is not a good time to try to propagate, but that's just my opinion. In past experiences, I always use clean leafs with no bugs on them, everytime it has bugs on it, it lowers the chances of it budding.

    About 3-4 weeks. When it starts budding, you can take it out right away or leave it in for a week or so and just place it on whatever mix you use.

    Another modification to this approach would be to put the leaves in a container that already has soil media and just overfill it. In time the leaves bud. Instead of removing it from a water matrix and moving it one that is solid, just let it evaporate and adjust slowly. I have had problems when transferring buds/plantlets/seedlings to a different matrix. Gradual is a safer approach.

    I thought jimscott would chime in. Water is his friend. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Floating leaves and other obove-ground plant parts (flower buds and stalks) in water to form buds and plantlets (complete with roots) has been a favorite of mine for about 30 years now.
