    Ok, I got a couple strikes on the cuttings in the covered cup of Sphagnum. As per my previous observations strikes from cuttings in Sphagnum vs water grow much more rapidly. These have outpaced the water strikes even though the water strikes had a 1-2 month start advantage.

    On the downside a few of the water strikes I removed to a covered cup have browned at the tips, including the growing point. I probably hardened them off to rapidly. Learn as you go along.

    Well I just took a good look at the new batch of cuttings from the beginning of the month and noticed a few strikes. This might be too easy.

    i partially buried mine in live sphag--growth point exposed...and then i see plantlets popping out from the moss a couple of months later. "too easy" might be correct

    Wow- NaN and amphirion, I'm glad to see that you're having such great success with them as well!!! Glad to see that spreading D. graomogolensis throughout collections should be quite manageable if everyone pitches in, as NaN has already mentioned.

    I haven't been able to feed my cuttings as much as I'd planned to so they have sat untouched for 2 months now, and haven't grown much more. They're definitely crowding each other out. They look fantastic, red, and dewey, but if I want these guys to size up at all, looks like divisions will be the next step. I'll have to do that this weekend.

    The best thing about these cuttings is that I've literally left them sealed off in a pot with saran and lfs- haven't had to water them for 2 months. Talk about worry-free!

    I'm going to harden off this new batch of strikes by putting the cutting in a bed of live Sphagnum moss in a cup and covering everything with water and let the water evaporate off. Just putting them on a Sphagnum in a covered cup didn't work so well.
