    D. Binata Propogation

    About a month ago I received a small D. Binata plant from a very generous member of this forum. It has quickly become my favorite new plant and it's growth has taken off. While It's leaves are at most a few inches long, it appears to be doing very well. I was wondering how soon I should try doing leaf cuttings because I would like more of this plant. Also, any species specific advice would be great!

    You can use root segments if you're like me (impatient). I really like the forked-leaves dews.

    Here's Aaron's website on dew propagation.

    That is always my first source for information, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to traumatize a young plant by taking pieces from it too early! I do like a root cutting idea, I could do it when separating it into 2 plants anyways.

    With a root cutting you will get a bigger plant faster than with a leaf cutting. You might get more plants with a leaf cutting though.
