I have 'cloned' A. titanum using a relatively new leaflet and 
"Olivias' Cloning Gel". It is just a weak fertilizer in a gel 
base of some sort. No hormones. But it seems to work. "Rootone"
rooting hormone did almost nothing.

We have been experimenting with leaf cuttings on aroids for several 
years and are working on a formal article with our results with 
amorphophallus.  We have had success within the genera of 
Amorphophallus, arisaema, pseudodracontium, and pinellia.
