Hey guys, I took a monstera cutting from an aunts 27 something monstera, and I was wondering if it would sprout some roots? I've never had a successful cutting, and I'm really really hoping this works! I've been looking everywhere for a monstera, but they're either out of stock or they don't carry them Confused Shrug! anyway I was kind of wondering what those brown-red stock things are on both sides of the cutting. The plant is ancient, so I'm thinking it could be some old aerial roots?

Welcome. Where do you live? Monstera is a very common house plant. You should be able to find many locally and then there is always eBay. Looks like roots to me. Pot it up and see what happens. Gene

Hi again, good job making your 1st post! Yes, those are aerial / vestigial roots. Some or all should develop into real roots if you put your cutting in water or soil.

Hey guys! I'm back, and this time, I have a much better cutting. Anyway, my grandma gave me a bouquet of flowers for my junior high promotion, and it came with a packet of plant food. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to add a bit to the new cutting's water?

In general, people over feed their house plants. Most often extra food is going to hurt the plant not better it. Why add food to something that has no roots = cannot feed itself? There are gels and liquids that promote rooting. Those might be suitable. Gene

The water will turn green too, no benefit to be gained at this point, only detriments.

Up to you. Either way, longer in water or now in some soil. Both will probably work in the long run. Gene
