Two of those I did last year are firmly anchored and still firm. I don't know whether they're alive or not. One male, one female. The rest have rotted.

The five that I started from cuttings last summer all died after about four weeks. I kept their soil damp, their air humid, they looked good at first, they put out some tiny beginner leaves from buds but then they wilted and shriveled and died, no apparent root growth when I checked.
