    I don't know what the defining lines are to make a plant a fern but i don't think vfts are. I could be wrong though. Thanks for the details WayCool. I've read about it before but never had the guts to do it because I didn't know exactly what the rhizome is. Now I can do it.

    Your right Shauntell, VFT's are not ferns. Many plants form rhizomes. The only other that I can think of at the moment though, is the Iris.

    I actually made a whole bunch of root cuttings too, but not by my choice. I usually leave my vfts outside, but this time i left it on the porch and the next day i found half the traps ripped off with nibbles in many of them and my biggest best trap uprooted to dry!...i hope it can recover...
    so now i try my best to protect them and cover them and i even have a safekeeping vft on my high high window outside...

    o so i was just wondering...since i just started the root cuttings about a week ago, would i have to put them through dormancy also?, or is that too risky for the new plantlets as they might die?

    Unhappy

    When taking leaf cuttings, are there any benefits from using a rooting hormone? I have not done leaf cuttings before, only rooted divisions of the bulb. I would think a rooting hormone would help, but would like some input from people who have used it and who have not.

    thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!
