  RE: [Aroid-l] Leaflet use for tuber production.
From: "D. Christopher Rogers" <crogers at ecoanalysts.com> on 2007.01.24 at 18:14:41(15128)

At the University of California, Davis Conservatory we have propagated
Amorphophallus titanium from leaflets. The guy who developed the method
there is Ernesto Sandoval. Best results are obtained from terminal leaflets
with a petiole about as thick as your index finger. The lamina is stripped
from the portion of the petiole to be buried. The medium is
vermiculite/perlite, and it is important to keep them upright, even propping
them up if necessary. They are treated with a low dosage hormone (Rootone
F), given plenty of bottom heat and high humidity.

I hope this helps,
