    I remember reading on another forum that somebody used to cut out a wedge of the basal, then wrap it in LFS and wrap that in plastic wrap. Then they would wait until they saw roots (roots stop growing when they hit sunlight apparently) and then cut it off and pot it up. I'm wondering if anyone has done this? Sounds a lot like what some of you were talking about with cutting a mark into the basal and then repotting it so it would be in the media.

    If anyone knows the link to this please link it, because I am most likely going to be doing this during the summer..

    EDIT 2: Okay apparently it is called "Air Layering". http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=8130 there is a guide with pictures.
