Why bother with leaf cuttings? It flowers in third season from seed!

Subject: [pbs] Propagating Eucomis vandermerwei

Does anyone know whether Eucomis vandermerwei is best propagated from leaf
cuttings or vertical bulb sections?  I've found the former very effective
for E. autumnalis, the later best for E. bicolor, and both only mildly
successful for E. montana.  Could be a matter of timing, of course.  Thanks
in advance for any help -
