I very lightly put a tiny pinch of soil over the white part and the leaf to keep it down. I put it in a plastic bag and put it in my terrarium and waited. Ta da, secret reveiled.

    Ah yes, those vial thngs! That's exactly how I refer to them. Um... the mutated insect thing didn't work out too well, I'm afraid.

    So, the float method works, but I don't think it works as well as just laying the pullings in sphagnum. Here are a couple of pics:

    This one is from pure water.

    This one is from pure water also.

    This plantlet was on the sphagnum.

    Not all that definitive, but both methods seem to work fine.
