    You don't have to use test tubes, per se. Any sealable plastic vessel will work I'm using round, shallow plastic disks right now.

    Millipede, I'm guessing your leaves are getting fried. Have you been placing them on a south-facing windowsill? If so, try an east-facing windowsill and see if you get different results.
    The easiest way is to start these under lights, since it expedites the process a bit, and doesn't provide very much heat.

    Ideally, you want newly emerged leaves that haven't caught anything yet in clean pure water (not tap). Since, you're having contamination issues, only one leaf per water container.

    hey RL! thanks for the tips. after you mentioned contamination i went and cut a new batch of leaves and shook them in a bottle of water with a few drops of bleach to wash of the bugs and kill all the germs. i rinsed em really good and filled the bottle about halfway up. im happy to say now, two weeks later, im getting pretty good results! not a single one rotted away and i have about 3-4 sprouts on every leaf

    or if you have a weedy dew seeding you will have seeds caught in the leaves and they will sprout also....

    Another method of getting moreplants quiclyiss to behead the plant about one inch down from the crown
    Plant it in another pot. usually have to lie the roots horizontally to get them to sprout The longer the piece of root the more vigorous plant you will get
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.
