Anyone with any tips? I just poked all the single leaves into peat/perlite.

So no, these aren't seedlings. They are new plants from a spontaneous root division.Was it too early to remove all of them? Just lay them on the soil and hope for the best?
Panman wrote:The way you pulled them up, disconnected them from the root. You can try laying them on the soil and see if they will root. If you want to get other plants, just slip the original plant out of it's pot, trim off a couple of inches of one or two of the roots, and plant them just below the soil surface. They will sprout quickly and give you bigger plants faster than growing by seed.I am somewhat doubtful that lying leaf pullings on the soil is going to do anything. If all else fails, just use them as leaf cuttings. I thought leaf pullings usually works for petiolaris and pygmies???

Do a little digging and you'll find people that swear up and down that binata NEED a dormancy. The very next page you find someone with an entire rack of binata that they say never go dormant.

There are cold-hardy varieties from Tasmania and the mountains of southern Australia and New Zealand. Then there are subtropical varieties from northeastern Australia and the North Island of New Zealand. Unless you know the location, or the grower tells you how he/she keeps them, it's hard to say if that particular plant needs dormancy or not.True, but it's still in their genetics to be able to go dormant, even if they live in an area that doesn't normally offer optimal conditions to support it, and they've adapted to those conditions. Tropical forms of intermedia and filiformis come to mind, or even VFT's that have adapted to subtropical environs.
