In my last post I talked about trying to make lemonade out of my broken Amorphophallus atroviridis leaf. Last night I impatiently opened the container, checked the leaves, and then gently brushed aside the vermiculite to see if there was anything at the end of the leaf cutting.
I was ecstatic to find several roots growing there. I snapped a quick picture and returned the cutting to the container, gently pushing the media back in place. I didn't want to disturb the two other cuttings. I have a feeling all three of them have rooted because none of the leaves have wilted. At this pace I imagine I will have some tubers forming in the next month and then maybe a new leaf will emerge from each of those tubers in a couple of months after that.
