I have 3 pup-like stalks of philodendron bipinnatifidum that I separated from a neighbor's dormant plant (no leaves, just the trunk) that I have rooting in water. Sorry no pictures as I write this. They have been in the water for over 3 weeks. I do not see any major roots but small white bumps beginning. I do have the aerial roots attached. The plants are starting to grow small leaves. Is now the time where I can plant them in soil or should I keep them longer in water. I live in Northwest Florida. Thanks as this is my first experience with this plant.

Hi Masada17, Welcome!

I've never rooted Tree Philodendron (Philodendron bipinnatifidum) in water and I'm not sure how quickly they will acclimate to soil conditions. Since you are in NW Florida; to be sure they aren't subjected to cold temp's or a possible unexpected late frost, it might be best to wait a few more weeks before putting them in the ground.

Thanks plantladylin. We have had warm weather and I am itching to get my plants going. Patience is probably the best course of action. Smiling Thank You!
