    Instead of placing the entire length of the leaf on the media.I would try snipping a couple of the plantlets off with as much of the leaf as possible without cutting the next plantlet. Put them on the media.your choice of stelizing the snippers of scissors
    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.

    It's hard to get a good picture through a Ziplock bag, but here's another approach:





    This leaf have been in there a week. Note the dew on the leaf

    Transferring from a water environment to a pot can have its casualties. So I also employ the pot in the Ziplock approach, which cuts down on the variables. It's also good for seed germination.

    Lois: I'll have to check on the centrifuge tubes.

    About a week ago I divided my binata into 2 separate plants, both are in new pots and thriving independantly...one even appears to be throwing off another plant at the base already!

    thats cool VB. theyll probably keep doing that. mine did

    everybody else: thanks for all the info! i was always wary of the water method. now i feel like its the best easiest way to do cuttings.

    im going to leave my little plantlettes in the water for another week or two so that theyre better able to photosynthesis on their own. im afraid cutting the mother leaf into pieces would be too stressful for them while transitioning into air/soil
