Checked the Mcdanalds cups this morning and one of the leaves has white bumps on the bottom portion of the back side of leaf. I think it is rooting. Three cheers for the leaf. CHEER! CHEER!!! CHEER!!!!!!!!!!! Jim

I posted a photo showing a cutting and how to root from a stem. This is the first time that I have tried to just root the leaf without the stem and really don't know why if you could root from the stem why you would want to root just the leaf any way. I guess just to see if I could do it. I had much success in rooting the stems. I think there are certain species that won't root. That is the posting I remember. Sorry crestedchik that you lost yours. I root the stem By just putting the stem in water and I use Mcdonalds coffee cups. I have 14 rooting now. I think 3 are leaf and the others are stems. I have several of the stems that have started forming little white bumps on the stems indicating that they are about to send out roots. Jim

Now I dont really understand.Are you talking about cuttings? or the leaf stem ? I know I can take a cutting and root it,but this leaf thing is what has me confused.Do you take a leaf off the plant and put it in water? Or are you taking a branch and rooting it?

I have a leaf with no stem that has the white bumps forming that the roots come from. I haven't tried to root the leaf before. This is my first attempt at the leaf. I have rooted stems that I removed from the bottom of the brug and rooted in water. Hope this is clear. Jim
