Hi Everyone, I planted a leaf of Sinningia Amizade about two months ago to propagate. That leaf has sprouted, so I imagine a tuber grew. I now have about six leaves the size of a dime. My question is what do I do now. Do I leave the mama leaf attached and let it die naturally or do I remove it when the baby is a little bigger. Thanks for your help. Jackie

Jackie,
For now I would just leave it attached.The baby leaves may still be getting nourishment from it.If it starts to die,remove it.
