Out of the 4 leaves I bought (plus the bonus leaf) from Reed's back in August, I finally have 2 of them with little mouse ears poking up from the soil. The other three seem to be solidly in the soil when I gently tugged so I assume they're rooted and just slower than these two. I was thinking that none of them had sprouted yet, but was surprised to find the two pots with the mouse ears hidden on the back side of the leaf! For some reason I was thinking that the babies would show up on the front/top side of the mother leaf - I saw photos on this site and that's the way they were growing so I just assumed that would be the way they would come up and hadn't turned the little cups around and looked closely through the baggies, LOL.
There is one leaf (so far without babies) that seems to be browning a bit on the very tip - should I trim that part back or leave it alone? The rest of the leaf looks perfectly green, firm and healthy. I'm very nervous about separating the baby plants from the mother leaf. With all the time invested, I'm so anxious for them to do well!
