Well Friday night while in the garden section looking for a gloxinia....I did something that my gramma had done a thousand times. Don't tell anyone, but I pinched a leaf from an African Violet for a little rooting experiment. Gramma used to do this all the time. I remember taking her grocery shopping when she no longer drove her car, and being so embarrassed when she would spot a violet or other plant that tempted her. She would pick it up and comment on how beautiful or unusual the shade or colour was (and how expensive it was)....then she would quickly pinch a leaf from the bottom and carefully wrap it's stem in a wet tissue and place it in a plastic bag to take home to root. All the while commenting on how this one little leaf would never be missed and how it was actually good for the plant. Then she would take it home and let it set in her window in a small glass or jelly jar of water.....patiently waiting for it to root. When it did root she would plant it in soil and up onto the window sill it would go in a little pot with a margarine container lid or a jar lid underneath.
Anyone know how long this should take? I have no idea what I'm doing here.
