F.d. 'Rufa' propagation

Post by foxd »

I recently took some divisions off my Rufa and discovered I had a small section of rhizome left over with no attached culm or roots. I planted it in a small plastic cup with potting soil. The soil covering it washed off after I watered it, so it is half buried. I decided not to worry about this because I noticed the Ruga rhizomes tend to half-emerge from the soil anyway.

After one week there appears to be some changes in the rhizome. Could be growth. Could be its dying. I haven't decided yet.

I know stevelau1911 reported success with propagating Rufa is a similar way and I thought it might be nice to know how easily this works.

The legal issues that will arise when the undead walk the earth are legion, and addressing them all is well beyond what could reasonably be accomplished in this brief Essay. Indeed, a complete treatment of the tax issues alone would require several volumes.
