It is possible to root many plants from tip cuttings although it is usually recommended to use a barely damp soilless potting mix rather than water. Some gardeners will also use a rooting hormone to help jump start the rooting process, especially with woodier plants such as trees or shrubs. Some plants to try rooting and growing on in water would include willows and houseplants such as spider plants and coleus as well as philodendron.
