    I can 2nd that. Glabrous plants are generally more forgiving w/ water propagation. The pubescent varieties are more stubborn

    Not impossible tho.....

    Cheers,
    As I mentioned above, I'm batting zero with water propagation of the hairy plants (probably something over 50 leaves & multiple attempts). The maestro has regular success with them though....

    As for divisions, it seems that any of the complex will add add'l growth points if they're happy. Once they start, they continue to divide regularly (or so it seems). The Zen Master reported a D. ordensis with something like 20 growth points. In Lowrie's book, many of the plants are shown growing in spreading clumps.
    All the best,
    Ron

    I can attest to the experience of D. paradoxa multiplying on their own. This is how they looked two falls ago:



    After giving away ~5 of them, this how many there were last fall:



    I am definitely seeing baby plants mixed in with mature plants. Forget the hand pollination and leaf cuttings!
