    I use a Canon PowerShot G2 with Macro lens, set f stop at 8.0, set to macro mode, and with a tripod and the timer feature, so I am not touching anywhere near the camera when the shutter trips. The photo is actually cropped and reduced quite a bit in order that it is small enough file to load quickly on web.

    wow! your already an expert on these plants! hope you'll have enough to trade soon [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] just cut up every plant and you'll have a ton!(prob25-30) then a coulple months later, do the same thing again! think of it, you can have up to 100 very rare plants in 3 months or less! you could get alot of other rare plants that way.

    You have to take into account the fact that not every leaf will produce a plantlet and that D.falconeri does not have 30 leaves at one time.

    he has about 5 plants. if each leaf has 5 leaves, and he cut off 3 leaves on each plant, that would be 15. then after each leaf has healthy plants growing, he could take off 3 leaves off each of the 15 plants, thats 45. then 3 off each of the 45 plants, that's 135! then 3 off of every of the 135 plants, that's 405!+5+15+45+135=605!
    I'm pretty sure that's right. maybe 805 plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    how big are your leaf cuttings now? Maybe you can post a pic? yours looks nothing like the falconeri in the savage garden. yours looks alot better, healthier, and alot redder. but in the pic it is in pure peat pellets and it looks like it isn't even heated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] oh yeah keep us posted on how they are doing and keep posting pics!

    Hi!
    On 28.03.2003 I started some D. petiolaris cuttings on Spaghnum and in pure water. Two of them did it. All the cuttings which failed rotted during the first week. Next time I will bury all of them under the Spaghnum. But one of the successful cuttings was in pure water, too.

    Look at the pictures:
