Linda, The plastic bag raises the humidity around the leaf and keeps
the moisture level fairly constant. You could put a pencil in the pot
and put a sandwich bag lossely over it (with the pencil holding the
bag upright so the bag does not touch the leaf.) If the bag touches
the leaf it might rot. Water the vermiculite once, and check if it is
dry in 3 weeks--chances are that it will still be moist exspecially if
you use the bag. The bag will show some condensation telling you
there is water. Starting seeds or cuttings for most plants will
benefit from a greenhouse effect. A north window for your leaf is
ideal. An east window (morning sun) is ideal for adult AFs.
I'm totally with you in this assessment, Jammer. AV's don't need any
covering while rooting. They're easy to root in water, vermiculite, or
potting soil. Covering with plastic only contributes to fungal disease.
