    Some time ago, I had good success with propagating D. binata (multifida extrema) from the floral stalk. Just cut it into 1" segments, float in distilled water, keep covered and well-lit.

    It took a couple months to see any activity, but once buds formed, I transferred the stalk fragments to wet peat, and new plants practically exploded from the stalks.

    I also tried putting the stalk fragments directly into wet peat, but that was unsuccessful.

    Anyway, I just started a new batch yesterday. When new buds form on them, i will make them available to PFT members.

    Oh, this is beyond experiment. I know this propagation method works. I am just giving a heads-up that i will have plantlets available for interested parties in 2-3 months.
