    NM,
    Don't feel bad. Though I have never had this problem, I did fail to get one to flower for over 20 years.
    I am not sure how you went about it, but take a peaty substrate(or sphagnum), take a whole freash leaf and press it down hard against the medium(cover the base of the leaf). As much contact as possible is best. Some people take meshed material and use that to press it to the soil, and allow the sprouts to grow up through the mesh.
    Some also float a leaf on water(like in a petri dish).
    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Another trick I have had work for me is to put some water on the leaf when it is sitting on the soil so it kind of sticks to the soil. That ensures there is contact with the soil, and using that method I have not failed yet with a leaf cutting.
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.
