The process that I've used in the past is somewhat different that what
I only use the petiole. Take a healthy petiole, cut it up into 3 to 4 inch|
and verically place them in a container of fine pine bark and perlite
keep them warm and moist (I place the pot in a trash bag in the shade) Over
a period of about 6 weeks the petiole cuttings will begin rotting on the
at the end of 6 weeks a tuber will have formed and start to send up a leaf.
This process doesn't work for all species, but seems to be more successful
with those species where the petiole tissue is dense.
