Well, I stopped by this LFS that I regularly shop at on Saturday and they had this nice little colt for sale - $12.00 bucks! It was a very nice size since I was looking for a rather small frag of colt. When fully extended and out, measured about 4 1/2 inches and had 4 branches. Well, I told the guy I'd take it, it was already attached to a large rock. Since the rock was large and it was 12 bucks for the colt, he proceeded to remove it gently with his nail, came off ok. Anyway, I was reading up on propagating and fragging colt, well... it sucks! Colt is very difficult to frag. Tried glue, rubber bands with pick and nothing works. There is another method of sticking a plastic toothpick and then gluing but dont want to hurt it. I got tired of all the attempts and decided to get a small rock, place him and put two rubber bands to firmly hold him down. So far, so good. He is all the way in and mucosy, but he's being firmly held onto the rock. My question is, will this hurt the colt? And how many days will it take for it to take to the rock? I want to keep the colt and frag it myself, but if this fails, I may take it back to the LFS I bought it from. I really want to keep it, any advice!?
