    Now would be good. I would prepare a vessel with LFS and fill to the top. Place plantlets on top and allow the water level to evaporate while the plantlets nestle into the media. I'm going to do that today.

    UUUUURG!!! I hate squirrels!!!! They have left my potted plants alone all summer but I came home last night to find they had knocked over the pot with my new stalk cuttings which completely dried out. They were on a dry block of porous sandstone which wicked all the moisture away. On a lesser note they also dug into a pot I had put a few small D. adelaes into. 3 of the four are gone but I still have my original crowded mother pot so this one does not bother me as much.

    New question. If I were to try leaf cuttings this late in the year would I have problems with dormancy issues since they would be so small when winter arrives?

    Don't worry about dormancy. Just get them in a pot by a window or under lights. Deal with dormancy next year.

    Are there any advantage to make it completely submerge? I didn't know they doesn't rot this way.

    It seems to work better than laying the leaves out on media, covered, under lights.
