Normally, I use the JanW method for propagation attempts with section Lasiocephala plants. However, just before vacation, I'd run out of space on top of my lights and figured I'd give this another try (similar situation earlier this year w/ another clone - I was 2 for 2). When I returned from vacation, this is what I found (the strike must have sprouted almost the day I left!):
Not too pretty - but batting .200 for this round (so far).
