Thought I’d post a couple of updates on little propagation projects. These are the results of leaf cuttings taken at college last year in October. They took some time and only started showing results around April/May. And they have really shot up in the last six weeks in flower. I was never keen on them before as plants but having successfully propagated five now from just a couple of leaves I’m warming to them. I’ll probably keep one for myself and give the others away as too many for me.
