Dear Tsuh Yang:

That the broken Veltheima rooted is not surprising, as what you have
accomplished is propagated it by scaling, i.e. basal portions of the
leaves have rooted. Did you check to see if this is so? If it is you
might well be able to separate the 'scales' and end up with numerous

Regarding the basal disk, which you say has not done a thing, I doubt if
you will get new growth, but you might try giving warmer temperatures,
bottom heat would be best, and putting the disc at or even just above
the soil, a very sandy mix would be best. Making a couple of notches in
the disc might promote the production of growth. Cheers, John e. Bryan
