  Re: Titanum leaf cuttings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this sounds very exiting.

When your friend says he got the cuttings started, it will be of course important to see, if he gets just rooted leaf pieces. This is known from other plants as well and the rooted leafs can survive quite a while. For such a cutting it will be important that it is able to differentiate a new shoot meristem and for tuberous plants at least this must lead to a tuber formation as well.

The propagation with small leaf pieces works very well with Rex-Begonias.
