VFT Leaf Cutting Status Check
From what I've been able to research, you shouldn't try to root VFT leaf pullings now, but, well, I did anyway. It's been dipped in rooting hormone with about a centimeter or so of the white bulb remaining and the trap cut cleanly off of the petiole. I have it in a dish of moist peat moss inside a sealed plastic bag, and it's getting direct sunlight for quite some time in a bright windowsill.
It's been approximately 6 days, and the leaf has turned completely black (some, including the bulb portion, is buried under enough peat moss to secure it and it may or may not be blackened also). Is this just something that happens, or does this mean it's time to throw it out and perhaps wait till next spring? The leaf was rather old to begin with, but nowhere near dead and perfectly green. Could it be a problem with humidity, or too much direct light/heat? As this is my first attempt to root a cutting, any help would be appreciated from those who've succeeded!
