About a month later now. Some leaves didn't make it. These are growing strong. I have never done this before. So it is very exciting for me. I have many times sucessfully rooted plants in water. They like moisture around them and this must be a perfect spot. There is a water catch tray under the cactus and the poinsettia as well as the basil next to them. They are loving their new home here at Glenna's Garden in southern NH.
Have you ever done any interesting propagating of plants like this? I would love to hear your stories!
