    50/50 mix of pool filter sand and peat. Sitting in tray of water so water is just wicking up into the mix. No as waterlogged as it looks in picture.

    How did you go about doing the cutting? My three have failed so far but I haven't done anything special to keep 'em going. I'm also hoping the "when you're about to give up, they sprout" theory proves correct.

    Has anyone tried water progation for vfts. I saw a thread on cpuk where someone did it successfully, but he used deionized water and not the usual distilled/ro water and according to the thread, it took about 3 months for the cutting to form.

    I have. It wasn't successful for me, in my limited experience. Could have just been a fluke (with me). I had better success by placing the leaves, with the white part, into soil media - and waiting for several weeks.
