I did some research on the best times of year to do a leaf pulling and it seems there are two "better" times of year - early spring and in fall before dormancy. If done in fall, uprooting the plant is risky so you can try to do a leaf pulling by holding the rhizome in place with your thumb - I'm going to try this.
I think I'm going to try a few leaf pullings in the next couple days if I can do so without uprooting -
1) 1:1 peat/sand, moist not wet, spray bottle very occasionally only if necessary.
2) Strong fluorescent light, 14 hour cycle.
3) Leaf pull; cut trap off, lay leaf pulling on soil and place a pinch of medium over the rhizome end of the leaf, just enough that it's buried.
4) Cover pot with plastic wrap and poke several rice-sized holes in it.
Am I missing anything? Should I use a different soil mix?
