    So, even like 3-4 hours of direct will kill it?

    If it's the intense sunlight you get in the late morning (10:30 or so) to late afternoon, the heat will cause problems such as cooking the leaf to just drying it out because it can't take up water very fast. The morning sun is a little weaker as is late evening sun when it's dropped down to the horizon a bit and the day starts to cool. A couple hours of either should be OK. I'd keep an eye on the cutting and move it out of the direct type of light if it looked like it was getting stressed or too hot though. Just keep in mind that the leaf is working under the handicap of not having roots as well as also having to make a whole new plant.

    I am currently doing the same thing and I had a question. DOes it have to have indirect sunlight for only a bit? Or can it go without light, yet not in a dark place??

    Hi Ryan and welcome to the forums [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]!

    I would go for the bright indirect sunlight to help the leaf photosynthesize food. The weaker the light the less efficiently it can make food.

    You can also use artificial light (fluorescents).

    OK. I hope I got the right PeatMoss. I just grabbed the only thing Wal-mart had last night at 11[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]0 so it will have to do.

    It is called: Shultz Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss.
