Propagating from leaves

Late spring/early summer leaves once they have hardened off are best. Be
careful with mist as too much causes them to rot. Late season leaves root
very poorly.  I hope this helps.

Subject: [pbs] Propagating from leaves

Several have commented on the propagation of bulbs like Lachenalia and
Eucomis from leaves. Does anyone have experience, or better data, on when it
is best to start in the growth cycle; e.g., when leaves are early emerging
or more mature?
