Am. titanum cutting experience ...
From: Anne Olivier <a.j.olivier at pl.hanze.nl> on 1998.02.03 at 14:56:14(1896)|
In november someone mentioned making cuttings out of Amorphophallus
leaves, the experience mostly came from bulbil forming species like Am.
If I recall correctly, then no one had info on Am. titanum cuttings at|
that time. I thought it might be a good idea to try this for myself and
should I succeed then I would have created a nice 'backup' plant in case
the parent plant died.
I used only one cutting taken from a leaf that was turning yellow
anyway. Now after 3 months I have a thickening of the stem of approx. 5
mm and 2 roots growing out of it. At this time there is still no sign of
any leafs forming, but I am patient. I hope I can comment on any
developments in that direction in the following weeks ( months? ).
Well, I suppose other people have more experience with this plant, but I
thought I'd let you share in what I am doing. BTW the plants are from
seeds I got from Wilbert, so I think it is an Am. titanum allright.
Bye from the Netherlands,

Please give us specifics here. Did you take the entire petiole? Or did you
take one "branch" of the the leaf at the top of the petiole? How did you
treat the cutting?
Needless to say, this it encouraging news for the propagation of non-bulbil
forming species. Have you tried it with any other species?
