This is an idea I have thought about in the past. Has there ever been  
studies on which plants can be propagated from leaves or even segments of  
leaves?. I had proposed heading a group at the Indoor Gardening Society in New  
York years ago, but the idea fell through due to my  health issues, It's  
common knowledge that saintpaulias are candidates as well as rhizomatous  
begonias and gesneriads. I accidentally found out  that cinerarias  also will 
produce plantlets from a leaf  when a leaf was buried during  repotting. 
Sansevierias I think also will grow a plant from a leaf. Any othe  rplants out 
there that can be listed? Is there a special botanical term for this  type of 
propagation ?
