So I made a goof this evening as I was cutting a flower stalk off a D. Capensis "Red" - I accidentally cut two leaves (young, sturdy leaves) off the plant. Rather than get annoyed, I decided I'd try my hand at leaf cutting propagation.
From glancing around online, here, and on YouTube, I've found a lot of people having luck just placing the leaves in a clear, small container of distilled water and covering it up with some kind of clear wrap. People say a couple weeks or a month later they start seeing some plantlets forming. Is this a good method? Have people had luck with this?
Or would placing it on some very moist soil be a better method?
Currently they're just floating in a clear container with a small, cut up ziploc bag taped tightly over the top. I placed the container directly under some T8 lights.
It's not a huge deal for me as I have more capensis than I know what to do with, but I thought I'd give leaf cuttings a try as opposed to just tossing the leaves I accidentally cut.
