  Propagation by Leaf Cutting
From: "James W. Waddick" jim-jim at swbell.net> on 1999.09.13 at 15:53:45(3648)
Dear All;
Recalling the success in propagating some Amorphophallus from a
leaf cutting, I wonder how common (or possible) this method of propagation
is in aroids. Can one propagate Alocasia, Colocasia, Anthurium etc. ?
Anyone ever attempt this or have success ?
Curious to hear methods and successes as well as failures.

In Amorphophallus the leaf is cut with a short or no petiole and
the area between the petiole and the leaf blade is just covered in the soil
medium. High humidity may result in the formation of bulbils. Sorry for
vague details, but something seems to be going on here.

Appreciate any related comments.

Thanks Jim W.
