    Hi Mark,

    That's cool! How many mother plants are they from? Just one?

    Thanks, Cindy. Yes, it was just a single plant. There is also a larger division that is rooting elsewhere from the same. Of course now I wish I had taken 'before' pics.

    D. ordensis leaf that fell off when I cut the experiment plant into half.




    The other half without root is taking off!

    Congrats on your successes, Cindy. Do you think the ordensis leaf that took had any of the main part of the plant, as in a pulling, or was it just a lamina and petiole? I'm thinking I will try working with live sphagnum, too!

    Jimscott - what species is that?

    Hi mark,

    I remember the leaf as one that fell off when I cut the plant into two. I did not pay attention if it had any part of the main plant...all I did was to poke it into the live sphagnum moss. The other one that came off was the furry growth tip and that grew quite a bit...eventually it stopped and turned brown.

    The other half of the ordensis is doing so well that it now has it own root!




    And since it will get crowded next to its twin...I have given it a beautiful new home.
