I can't stand to throw away anything that still seems alive, so when I pruned my D. binata dichotoma a few months back I threw the cut leaves into an undrained container of peat and live sphagnum and put it in a freezer bag to cook under my lights.
Now they plantlets are here and much too big for the freezer bag, with some petioles five inches long. I tried leaving the bag open for a few days but the dry air in my apartment singed the sphagnum and immature leaves (the parent plant does fine in the dry air.) Now I have the bag partially open and today I'm going to open it a little more. I've been misting to try to keep the soil moist as the air dries.
Does anybody have any advice about dividing the plants from their parent leaves? It looks like one of the parents is still alive and making goo in places. Are the roots still fragile at this point in development - do I need to take special precautions not to disturb them when I pot the plants up?
