Rooting Plants in Glass Bottles

Use glass wine or beer bottles for rooting plants before you transfer them outdoors. The small neck helps the plant from falling into the water.

Thanks Becky, now when I look at some nice bottles with narrow necks I put them aside for rooting plants. Another addition to my treasure trove. Hilarious!

What's the secret to rooting? Only thing I can get to root is coleus....

Hi there Toni Green Grin!

Impatience is the only thing I've ever rooted in water. I think some house plants root well too.

Hopefully someone will come along that does this.

I love rooting. It's like an addition for me Toni and Vic. I cut the stem at a diagonal and stick it in water. I try to root everything. And if it doesn't root, at least I tried.
Today I was at Goodwill and found 5 new colored rooting bottles. 1 red, 3 blue and one dark green. I l love the colored ones.

I am rooting coleus, philodendron, spider plants, wandering jew and arrowhead right now.
