I bought herbs that were in soil i got rid of the soil and placed them in clear glasses with water will they grow ?
I did not get rid of the roots or anything i kept the roots intact the herbs are parsley basil and oregano if they won't grow then should i take a piece from them then try to grow it in the water ? I am growing them indoors also how would these plants do if i go to college i am going to be in a dorm at Xavier university will they survive in water there ?

From left to right, it appears you have oregano, parsley, and sage (rather than basil). I have never tried growing them in water, but it's certainly worth a whirl. All three are pretty hardy. I have good luck sticking grocery store herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro) in water on my kitchen counter, although I am just trying to keep them fresh until I've used them up. Let us know how it goes. And welcome!

They will survive for short periods of time, but they will eventually need soil and bright lights to obtain all the nutrients necessary.
Keep going!
