    I pull a leaf off so that a part of the white base comes off with it, then I lay it on top of some sphagnum with the white base part of the leaf buried in the sphagnum, about 1/2 inch.
    I cover it to keep the humidity up and set it in the window where it gets some sun.
    In a few weeks you should see some small plantlets growing out of the base part of the leaf.
    I have 3 typical VFT's and 2 red dragon VFT's that I propogated that way.
    Hope this helps [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
