    VFT Leaf Cutting Question

    I will soon be taking these guys outside:



    I plant to take their pots and put them in a planter and was wondering if I can take their leaf cuttings and embed them in their respective pots, and have them propogate. I know that I can get them to sprout new plants indoors, with live LFS and intense artificial lighting, but would it work outside?

    ya know I'm sure that it would work... but I think your strike rate is probably much lower...

    guess thats variable upon your conditions outside though ya know? and depending on the media in which your trying to get them to strike in would make a difference also...

    what I typically do cuttings in, isnt the same thing I pot them in when they've established roots...

    not enough room to do em inside?

    They will be nestled in LFS. LOL! There's never enough room inside!
