Make a simple and cheap propagation station for all of your water-based cuttings.

A lot of people propagate cuttings from their plants. Here are a couple of ideas.

Get one of those compartment things for makeup at Dollar Tree. You can also order (minimum is a case) from their website.

I then spray-painted the bottom, let it dry, and spray-painted the top. I chose silver to match the tops of the bottles. And I thought they would look more chic😊.

Some Dollar Trees carry the bottles, but some do not, so you'll have to get them from their website, Amazon, etc.

Another idea is to find stuff around your house or at a thrift store and repurpose it. I think this base or stand or whatever was originally for candles. I found 3 matching glasses that fit perfectly.

So, what do you use when propagating cuttings of your favorite houseplants, etc.? Would love to see them!
