|How often do you change the water ? There is a lot about how to cut and how long of a stem but I have not heard how often to change the water ??|

|I would imagine it would depend on what plant the cutting is from???? IDK.................|

|That's true, some plants make their own rooting hormones, so if you leave cuttings for a couple of weeks in the same water they will root better. My brugmansias, coleus and begonias both do this. I just add fresh water to what's in the container.

|I've not had much luck with water.
It's so much easier to start cuttings in soil. Works every time for me.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|It depends on the plant, but I've also had better luck rooting in soil. It seems much faster. The things I root in water can take months or end up rotting.

|It probably doesn't make a lot of difference, but change the water when it starts to look cloudy, maybe every week or two.
