Spending too much $$$ on plants?
We're here to teach you the FREE and easy way to get more plants. There are many ways to propagate a plant. Today we will focus on propagating in water, and which type of plants to the best in water propagation.
Pothos plants, philodendrons, monsteras, and ZZ plants are the most common plants that can be propagated in only water. This is because they originate in more moist/ swampy areas and have the ability to grow in water.
Things you need:
- plant of your choice
- scissors, cutters
- glass container filled with water ( we recommend using our glass orbs)
Locate the plant you want to make more of and find a mature vine. You will want to select a part of the plant with a node, as this is where the plant will grow its roots from. You can tell where the node is by the little bump or segment in the vine.
If there are extra leaves on the stem, clear some away so that only the cutting and nodes are submerged in the water.
Place the cutting in the container of your choice and leave it in a location that receives bright to moderate indirect light. Do not place in low light areas or they will not root.
Forget about it for awhile. Roots take time to grow, so just be patient and let nature run its course. You will need to replenish the water time to time, as you will see the roots drinking the water fast!
Once you have roots you can plant it in soil, or leave it in there indefinitely.
