    Been years since I last had a vft. Is it not possible to grow plantlets from leaf cuttings?

    The way I understand it, in tissue culture, yes. In less sterile methods, there has to be a piece of the rizome, these are called leaf pullings. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    In the horticultural world they are correctly called leaf cuttings. Leaf pullings is a term for people who do not know better and children.

    Might have just been a typo, but in case not, just a minor FYI spelling correction -- "rhizome". One of those weird words with a sneaky silent "h".

    @fredg, the term THAT I HAVE HEARD, for that method is leaf pullings. I would believe that the term THAT I HEARD would originate from the fact that the method involves pulling a trap with a downward motion.

    @DragonsEye, thank you for correcting my spelling.

    Well, I guess the term is cuttings.
