    I remember reading somewhere that you can cut a Vft flowerstalk into sections, place the sections in damp sphagnum, and small plantlets will grow from the sections. I know for a fact you can use the flowerstalk base for propagation. But I haven't tried this before. Does anyone know if this works? Any tips?


    Thanks,

    I guess I'll try it anyway. I'll let you all know the results.

    Hi I've never read that to the best of my knowledge. However, please keep us posted on your results.

    With leaf cutting, you have to remove the white base for propagation.

    Propagating with the flowerstalk, would you remove the white base too? And if so, how do you do that without damaging the plant?

    Just a curious thought [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    To propagate a Vft using it's flower stalk base, just twist the stalk and pull. It should come right out. If you place the flower stalk base rightside up in some Sphagnum, you'll have plantlets in a couple of weeks. (only took two weeks for me)

    Interesting! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I'll have to give this a try myself.

    Thanks for the new experiment.

    Hi there,

    I actually tried this when I pulled the flower out of my cvft. It didn't seem to work...Not sure why. Anyway, the vft pretty much stopped growing anything after I pulled the flower. What's interesting is that I accidentally pulled away some root when I was removing a dying leaf. I decided to just plant that root and I think it's actually growing! We shall see. Wish me luck.

    Here are the results:

    All of the cutting failed. They turned black. But what's weird is they get squishy or dry, just black. Anyway, the base cutting, which should have worked, failed because I didn't get enough rhizome with it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] At least I know now.
