Some plants develop roots more readily than others, and do not seem to mind whether they do so in soil or in water. I'd suggest rooting them in potting soil. You can hedge your bet by dipping the cut end in powdered rooting hormone before planting. Keep the soil moist, but not soggy wet, and place the container near the parent plant (or where the growing conditions are similar).
