    Jim, can you elaborate a little bit on what you did, specifically with the D. filiformis? Did you cut a healthy leaf thread at the base and just placed in water? How long did the leaf stay in the water before showing signs of life?



    Thanks!

    The plantlets in the upper left are really cool. That is amazing that you can get 6 brand new plants from 1 leaf! How big is the mother plant?

    I've only had luck with root cuttings, but it is awesome how one leaf can generate more than 5 plants.

    You just cut the leaf and place it in water...all, half or just part depending how big is the leaf.
    I used to cut the short ugly ones or the ones starting to die and just dump them in the water tray where the pot was sitting and tens of plants would grow from a leaf. This is easier than a cape.

    The mother plant has been in a constant state of reacting and recovering to the weather. finally, now, the plant is recovering past near freezing overnight lows. So every couple weeks I'll pluck a leaf and put in this tub of swampy LFS on the porch.

    I assume flower stalks would work?
