  Titanum Leaf Cuttings

Subject: Titanum Leaf Cuttings

One more note on the leaf cutting story. I took two cuttings from my
about 6 months ago. Each cutting was a single leaflet about 8 inches long
and about 4 inches wide. They were each treated with a different rooting
compound and put into a seedling mix. (fine pearlite/vermiculite/sand)
The potted cuttings were put into a sealed plastic bag and placed under
fluorescent light. Both cuttings still appear to be alive, but I do not
plan to dig them up to see if I have bulbils or just roots until the
dies back.

On another note, the Suran (A. paeoniifolius) I bought at the local Indian
mart last August have both sprouted. One is about 6 feet tall with a two
(and growing) leaf spread. The other one I put outside when it started to
and it is about 2 feet tall and is just starting to unfurl.

They both have one problem though, there is a fungus growing in the pots as
well. It produces bright yellow fruiting bodies (toadstools) and I have
unsuccessful in stopping it. I have tried a Benomyl drench, but that just
to control the growth on the top of the pot leaving it to sprout out the
holes. Any ideas on how to stop this thing?
