    Frequency of blooms depends on the species. I tended to find hispidula and violacea were pretty regular bloomers while pygmea, repens and lobata would only go once per year.

    I tended to find that they did better in a peat/sand mix but that may have just been my conditions.

    Most will strike well from leaves but I preferred to keep them on just damp moss rather than saturated moss, the latter just seemed to have higher loss rates

    Thanks, I had planted the leaf pulls like when I'm trying to establish a utric (just flooded to the soil surface) but I have poured off the excess water after reading your note. We'll see how they go.

    Ground live moss from the food blender is the best medium to start cuttings. Mine regularly bloomed in the spring, G. violacaea almost all year.
