    I was hoping this thread would encourage more people to try to do leaf cuttings of D. Regia. Looks like I might have succeeded . Please update this thread with your results. Good luck to everyone.

    No arguments from me. From everything I have read, I would believe the majority would agree with you as well. Though the ease of it isn't so much the point as the possibility of leaf cuttings. The perception at hand seems to indicate that leaf cuttings of D. regia are fairly hard to get to strike and I think that deters a lot of people from trying it. It's been successful before with JC's Big Easy and i'm sure many others have succeeded without writing about it. Maybe if more people gave it a shot, we would discover that it isn't nearly as hard and rather, as easy as a root cutting. It's all about the discovery and fun of trying new things in the end.

    As kula said, 'challenge the known and embrace the unknown'

    I wonder if drosophyllum leaves would strike seeing as regia used to be thought impossible which clearly isnt true has anyone ever tryed Drosophyllum leaves succesfully?, seeing as seed is the only other way to propagate it.

    I have tried Ron's (patent pending) test tube method. I am not positive I will have success. The leaf turned a dark green almost immediately like it became saturated with water, but we'll see.

    I didn't cut the leaf all the way to the base to try to get some white part as I think I probably should have. If this one fails, I will try again cutting the leaf all the way down to the base of the plant just to see if it makes a difference. My poor regia. It's a wonder it hasn't crooked with all that I've done to it trying to get it to make me some regia babies.
