Very nice! Perhaps you could make a presentation at an NECPS meeting with those results.
Imagine if you could get hold of a nice cultivar - you'd make a bit of cash on ebay!
.... oh.... and BTW.... guess what's sending up a flower stalk?! No picture of proof until it actually opens!
So the real question is.. how many times did you poke a hole in your hand instead of the cup? xD
I tried leaf cuttings with a green dragon and a red dragon....both didnt germinate...those wheere when I just recieved the plants from an online store which apparent had them in soil for 5 months.
However, I used a 1 yr old VFT with a nice corm size.....took some pieces of the white corm that was left over from cut leaves from last season and put them on peat....it germinated into like 6 plants (from 3 cuttings).
Varun- just a termiology thing- cuttings "strike", seeds "germinate (someone's bound to correct you sooner or later, figured I'd beat the rush)
That's a cool experiment Presto, I should try something like that too, thanks for the inspiration

Now imagine if you were to tissue culture the VFT. 2 or 3 sections per leaf, one section per flask. Each successful flask yielding on the average of 30 plantlets (wild guess). Then you can reflask those plantlets and maybe again yield 20-30 plantlets per flask. The mind boggles.
