Dear Uli:

	When we take Dahlia imperialis cuttings, we use a 6-12" section of cane
and remove the leaves.  It is placed horizontally on a flat of potting soil
and pressed in lightly.  Usually 4-6 weeks is necessary to have a new plant.  

	Regarding ledbourias, these can be rooted from leaf cuttings, similar to
some begonias and african violets.  This is a great way to rapidly increase
