We’ve covered How To Propagate in Water on our plant lab blog, which brings up an important question:

Which plants should I propagate?? 

We’ve got you covered! 

We’ve made a full guide to which houseplants are the absolute best for propagation, filled with common mistakes to watch out for and how long the process is for each plant.

 

Pothos Houseplant for Water Propagation

Pothos are some of the absolute easiest plants to propagate, and are one of our favorites. All you need is a leaf and a node and you’re off!

These plants are super easy to take care of potted and even easier to propagate! Simply use a cutting with a node and you’ll see roots starting to form not too long after putting in water!

Top 5 Most Common Propagation Mistakes  Top 5 Most Common Propagation Mistakes

Honestly, unless you have the correct setup, it doesn’t really matter if you have the easiest plant in the world to propagate. The most important piece besides a healthy plant cutting is your propagation vessel!

 

Two important things to consider when it comes to the vessel: 

  1. The vessel should be uncolored and unobstructed glass - you want to make sure sunlight can reach all the way around the plant while it is propagating.  
  2. The cutting should be held in place by the vessel so it does not fall completely into the water causing the leaves to rot.
