  Re: Propagation by Leaf Cutting

Alan Galloway can't be reached right now but he said:
"I've been doing some Aroid propagation experiments this year...
Unlike some others, I do not use the upper part of the leaf. I use only
the petiole. I cut into 3-4 inch sections and stick them in a mixture
of pine bark and perlite, then put them underneath a trash bag for 6 to
8 weeks. After that the part of the petiole cutting above the ground
has whithered, but a bulbil has formed underground."

OK, the leaf has withered and there is a bulbil at the base. Help! What
do I do now?
