Hello this is my Dumbcane. My poor plant has been through a lot. We had a storm here about 3 weeks ago knocking my plant & breaking most of its roots off.

It's been in water since then, and has grown all new roots & this whole leaf is new. The roots circled in yellow are all new. (I change water every week)

Is it time for dirt? Should I just let it continue to grow in water for a little while?

Your cutting has enough roots that it can be moved into a small pot with a porous potting mix and drain hole at any time. It can also stay in water for a while, if you prefer.
