    I took some VFT leaf cuttings. Some of them are starting to grow little plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I have had a clear dome over the pot to keep the humidity up.
    At what size, of the little plant, is it strong enough for me to take the clear dome off? I do remove it at least once a day for a few minutes to allow fresh air in. I worry about the 100% humidity causing a fungus to attack the little VFT.

    Hey Gecko..
    I read this a while back and it makes sense, although I have not tried it personaly. Wrap the pot with a plastic bag, then clip off a small part of the corners. Gradualy snip off more and more of the corners untill you can remove the baggie completely. If you do it gradualy the plant should adapt fine.

    Good luck
