    VFT cuttings almost 100% of the time take. Give it good light...i.e., enough light as you would give an adult plant. put it on the surface of the damp media like that...and wait. Wait for few months and they should strike as long as the thing doens't go black or brown.

    jimscott once suggested floating them in water (as a novel approach, not a typical one)--anyone have experience trying this? The one I did failed.

    I am trying this approach right now. They have only been floating for a couple of weeks so far and I can't tell for sure if they are starting to form any roots. I think it takes at least a month, right? I will post again with results when they are definitive.
