rooting leaf stumps, propagation questions
A discussion on the house plant forum (Thanks pirate_girl!) has given me enabling inspiration to try propagating some of the ugly old leaf stumps on this plant. Although I've had this plant for decades, I've never tried propagating a leaf, just divisions.
The leaves I would like to remove:
It seems like I could just rip them (pulling down and out) cleanly from the mama so I'm not just creating a shorter stump. Thoughts?
Should they be potted ASAP or allowed to cure/dry first? If so, how long? What angle should I be aiming for regarding sticking the cutting in soil? Sticking straight up, or more sideways? My instinct would be to put the cuttings where they would only get some early morning sun. Would that be enough?
And the big question - what will happen? A new single leaf or a pup? Or does it vary?
