    No, the ROOT segment was buried 1/2" deep. I also have some leaf cuttings (D. capensis, D. capillaris) laid out on the soil surface.

All forms seem to respond the same. The time it takes before you see plantlets form varies, 2 weeks -- 2 months, approximately. I especially like this because it is easy to see the status of your cutting material and view any progress. Leaves usually produce more plantlets, but smaller, while flower stalk segments produce fewer, but larger plantlets.
    Well, I'll be trying this tonight with the flower stalk. I should get 6 or 7 one inch segments out of it. I'll float them in distilled water and see how they do.

    Has anybody ever tried adding rooting hormone, superthrive or any other additive to the water? What was the result?

    I'll have to try an experiment someday...
