I have executed 4 Packardian that decided to bloom at the same time.
Just for the sake of testing this again, maybe other times I waited for the bloom to be too developed before cutting.
For me a bigger succes would be getting those leaves to produce a new rosette.
Ironically with the hylotelethium (telephium types), leaf propagation produced way bigger and more developed mature plants in the same year than cutting did, also the protects the future plant of a pathogens that can ever via the cut, bateria, fungi, virus.
Now if I would know the secret to always knowing how to get the leaves going would be great.
