Re: [Aroid-l] Slow rooting
I don't know what you did wrong, but my ones were
rooted in 4-6 weeks.

I've never had Sanseveria root slowly, but my one
rooting Zamioculcas zamiifolia was a real
cliff-hanger! Knowing my
disorder regarding broken off leaves, the
manager at our local store gave me a leaf that had
with instructions to root it if I could.
Well, I took it home, carefully
cut off each of the
leaflets, and stuck them in some dampened,
potting mix in a clear plastic bag. They just sat
and sat there, and sat there for 14 MONTHS!!!
Then one day I guess they
just gave up and started
sending up little shoots. I guess some
can't be hurried up.
Now I'm trying to propagate
a caladium leaf that also
had the good grace to fall off. I cut
of the main "veins" the way we do for some begonias
gloxinias and laid it out flat on some sterile mix
in high humidity and
bright but not direct light. If
you know that this is an exercise in
tell me. Just let me live in my dream world for
little while longer.
