3. You can just put it on top of sphagnum, or you could put it in pure distilled water.
4. Don't cover it with sphagnum, it will need plenty of light.
5. If you don't want the plantlets to root into the media you struck the cutting on, I would transplant it after they get one or two leaves out (though it really doesn't matter as long as you keep the plantlets on wet media). Make sure to keep a good portion of the leaf around the plantlets.
Thank you for the advice! Few questions (correspond to the # of the points you made)
3. If I go the distilled route, should the container be sealed or open? Also, when would I plant them or would I just set the whole lead with plantlets on sphag?
5. What do you mean by "make sure to keep a good portion of the leaf around the plantlets"?
Also, should I decide to go with the sphagnum route, should I place the sticky side up or down? Thank you!
