Hey guys! I've got a huge monstera aerial root. Can it grow a leaf? Is it useless?

Alright guys I'm doing an experiment for our sake. I have split the root into 3 pieces. One piece is outdoors in a plastic bag which I have spritzed with water before sealing. Arizona weather is essentially a life sized incubator if you know how to use it, lol! Anyway, I put the remaining two pieces into a cup and submerged it with water and covered it in a plastic bag. Right now it is is an east facing window sill. I will post updates Crossing Fingers! That being said, I doubt this experiment will work, because the root has no nodes or anything. Not very experienced in any of this. Big Grin

Once you cut it off it is indeed useless. Might be good for making your water turn green though. Gene

Yeah as @gasrocks said, it didn't turn out well. Brown water galore!
