Regarding rooting: I had read on the net elsewhere that Ceropegia could be rooted in water, but I was very skeptical...with them being dry-loving succulent-type plants and all. All I had done before was to root extra branches in soil. When my linearis suffered from over-watering and I had many stray strands of plant, I planted some the way I normally do, burying a portion below the soil and keeping it watered regularly, but I also placed a few extras into a cup of water. That was two weeks ago, and last night I did notice that some roots had formed! While much of the stem under the water HAD rotted away, as I had expected, most of the stems did grow roots at the node closest to the water surface.

So, it IS possible to root Ceropegia in water.
