Water Propagation

There is a rising popularity in propagating with water for convenience and a view of the growing roots. There are a few caveats, as with all forms of propagation. Submerging an entire plant will inevitaly result in rotting plant matter. The water needs to be changed weekly at a minimum to prevent buildup of debris and mold. Whether cuttings or offsets are used, the method is still the same. Simply submerge the roots in a glass or cup with water. If the cutting has no roots it can be set slightly above the water to stimulate root growth with the humidity of the water below. You can even add a ziplog bag over it to speed up the process. For cuttings it's recommended to have at least 1 inch of a new plant before repotting. Offsets can be transplanted immediately since they tend to have developed root systems.
