With some tropical lilies this is as soon as the pad first unfurls.
One note on this method, Leaving the pad on the parent plant for a longer period of time usually prohibits growth of the viviparous node until just before the pad begins to decay.
Removing the pad earlier promotes growth of the viviparous node much faster than leaving it attached to the mother plant.

A viviparous animal is an animal employing vivipary: the embryo develops inside the body of the mother, from which it gains nourishment, as opposed to in an egg (ovipary).
The more advanced form of vivipary is called placental viviparity, and can occur in as different groups as sharks, velvet worms and rattle snakes.
A viviparous plant produces seeds that germinate before becoming detached from the parent plant, as in mangrove trees.

  Vivipary Summary
Viviparous reproduction involves the fertilized egg (or zygote) being retained within the uterus of the female, where it is nourished by nutrients and gases (especially oxygen) passing from the mother across a specialized, blood-rich tissue known as the placenta, which is connected to the embryo by a cord-like umbilicus.
Viviparous animals also differ from ovoviviparous species, in which the fertilized eggs are retained inside of the body of the female, where they develop (utilizing nutrition of the yolk and albumin) internally until fully independent, living young are born.

 Viviparous Sharks
The first fundamental investigations into the reproduction system of viviparous sharks and the nourishing of their young in the womb stem from Johannes Müller (1801-1858), a German physiologist who by many is considered to be the founder of the scientific branch of zoology.
Aristoteles discovered the so-called yolk placenta and was able to differentiate between viviparous and oviparous sharks with their egg capsules.
However, contrary to his predecessors, he seemed to be more aware of their special significance and his own findings and thus presented them to the public in a manner which marks the beginning of more intense research on the reproduction and development of sharks and rays.

Following the success of his Birds of America, John James Audubon began to gather material for an equally ambitious project to document the animal life of North America.
The results of the artist-naturalist's years of research and field study was the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, the outstanding work on American mammals of its time and a superb example of color lithography.
He envisioned Viviparous Quadrapeds (literally meaning four-footed mammals) as the definitive record of all North American mammals.

All viviparous quadrupeds, then, are furnished with an oesophagus and a windpipe, situated as in man; the same statement is applicable to oviparous quadrupeds and to birds, only that the latter present diversities in the shapes of these organs.
With oviparous quadrupeds the case is much the same as with the viviparous; that is to say, they also have the spleen exceedingly minute, as the tortoise, the freshwater tortoise, the toad, the lizard, the crocodile, and the frog.
Of viviparous quadrupeds the deer is without the organ, as also the roe, the horse, the mule, the ass, the seal, and some kinds of pigs.

The viviparous spikerush (Eleocharis vivipara Link) is found in and around marshes and swamps of the southern U.S. This small fine member of the Cyperaceae or sedge family is a cousin to the huge tule (Scirpus californicus, Plant of the Week, November 29, 2004).
But water levels fluctuate through the year and a viviparous spikerush that was on soil may be submerged for months after heavy rains.
When water levels fall and the viviparous spikerush is now growing terrestrially, it produces new culms.
