    I'll have to give this a try. Perhaps the warm temperatures are the key. I'm too lazy to uproot the plants to get root cuttings.

    I'll try both the water method and live Sphagnum. I prefer the Sphagnum method. Even though you get 3x-4x the strikes with the water method the Sphagnum plants tend to grow 2x-4x faster.

    Tamlin did say this species was easy to propagate so why it is so high priced is a mystery other than artificially created supply limits. Time to flood the market. I'll think I'll send cuttings to a couple TC people too.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.
    @NaN- I'm currently trying another batch in cooler conditions, but now that you mention it, I have also had success with D. graminifolia and several others in temperatures around 80 F (but am yet to try cuttings in cooler conditions as well).
    Here is a pic of the D. graminifolia:

    Okay, a couple months ago I took two sets of two cuttings. The leaves weren't particularly old or new but clean of any insect carcasses. I put one set in a tube and the other set in a covered cup of live Sphagnum. The tube and cup went into my Petiolaris tank which usually is in the high 80s during the day right now. Weather has been very cool this year.

    I got 8 strikes between the two water leaves and nothing (yet) from the Sphagnum set. The leaves in Sphagnum are still green with no sign of browning.

    I just cut four more leaves and put them in the tube and transplanted the leaves with strikes into a cup of Sphagnum. Time will tell how many survive but this species grows rapidly.

    Please no "gimme gimme" messages.

    Congratulations! I would not have thought that this species would do well with the higher temps - good to know! You've confirmed Aaron's successes.

    Congrats all around....
    I don't know what i was doing wrong, but a few years ago I tried every method (leaf cuttings) I could think of without success.
    Maybe mine were too cold??

    I dunno, but congrats!!!!!

    I have 3 or 4 on my preferred trade list that get first crack. After that

    Yep, that's the plan. I'll put some up for "lottery" in the trading post if and when they become available. My mission and any one else who wants to carry on the Tamlin Dawnstar tradition is to get as many of these in cultivation as possible.
