Hello group,
I'm hoping somebody could help me with this one. I have
had a cutting of Anadendrum microstachyum in sphaghnum
moss since Jan. of this year. The moss is mounted to a
board that gets constant moisture from a nozzle dripping
from above. It doesn't stay saturated, more moist with plenty
of air space. It has one leaf that still has a lot of green to it,
but I don't have any roots yet and no new leaves have
developed. Should I continue to be patient or should I try a
different metod? My first impluse is to be patient, but I would
like the opinion of others.

In Aroideana, Vol 10, No. 3, pg. 17, Dr. Nicolson says that, by definition,
Anadendurum is a tree climber. It is possible that you are keeping it too
wet. Beause even in the jungle plants are not completely wet all the time.
If there is enough stem, take a couple of nodes and place on top of
potting media and keep the media moist but let the stem dry a bit more than
you have it now... Might work!
