How to root in water?

The best way to root sansevieria in water is possibly to use a rooting hormone? This will help the plant to develop strong roots. To do this, take a cutting from the plant and remove the bottom leaves. Dip the cut end of the plant into the rooting hormone.

Place the cutting into a glass of water or jar of water, making sure that the leaves are above the waterline. Place the glass in a bright location but out of direct sunlight, and wait for the roots to develop.

This can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, not sure about this particular plant. Once the roots are a few inches long, you should be alright to transplant the cutting into a pot filled with well-drained potting mix.

Hope that helps.

I wondered the same thing so I did it, a bunch of times.

You can probably use smaller pieces.

One leaf can yield several cuttings so I used a V to keep track of which end goes down.

I also have found it easy to root. Plain water, no hormones required.

Agreed, and I forgot to say that. No hormones. I don't own any of that stuff.

Thanks for the answers, especially Tiffany's photos. My sanseveria is "Moonshine". All the cuttings rooted within a week with no hormones, just tap water. I used orchid clips to hold them off the bottom of the jar. Love the progression of photos.
