Water Rooting Your Cuttings

By Horseshoe
August 31, 2011

When rooting your cuttings in water, remember they’ll need adapting to soil when the time is right. Water-rooted cuttings grow roots suited for water but they’ll need to grow "soil roots" for best health when potting up. Help them along by adding soil to your water as you witness root growth coming on.

I've never heard of this fact either. Becky Boopaints told me I could root coleus in a soupy soil but I didn't know it was applicable in other cuttings. Good to know! Thanks Shoe!
