I have a stem of ruscus aculeatus in water for more than a year (without any roots at all) now new leafs coming out under each existing leaf. Can a plant this somehow and grow in my garden?

It is difficult to transplant from water to soil because the roots grown in water are very delicate. I hope someone will come along to advise you.

It has no roots at all? Can we see a picture? I'm a bit surprised it has survived so long without them. You could try planting and see what happens.

A year in only water, and no roots, and it's growing ??? That's, odd. Beats me ? How it could be growing.
Wait till it gets some roots on it.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

It's sometimes helpful to root things in water with rocks or pebbles or pearllite, something to give it structure. The roots will be a bit stronger than just in water.

It must have roots; look closely.
