    id go with water method. i couldnt get it to work due to the leaves rotting. so then i tried washing them real good in water with a bit of bleach. (rinse really well afterwards) ive never seen such good results. i got like 10+ plants per leaf (filiformis leaves)

    Interesting... Never thought to try sterilizing before. I must investigate!

    PS - I agree with Kris and the others that, so far as leaf cuttings go, water seems to be the best overall. I like to move my propagands to LFS or peat once the roots start exploring. Really high light and slightly underwatering the LFS can help slow it down enough to prevent smothering the babies.

    Thus far I've had great success using both methods, water and wet LFS. Though I am seeing quicker results with the cuttings on wet sphagnum.

    This is 'Marston Dragon' cutting after being in water for a couple weeks.
    Can I cut this into divisions to make multiple plants?

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
