I always have some sort of plant rooting in my East facing kitchen window. Right now in addition to the sweet potatoes, I have mint, coleus and African Violet babies (these are in soil now but started as water rooted leaves). I collect pretty glass pill bottles, etc for rooting baby plants.
It was only a week ago that I took cuttings of some of the sweet potato vines I had growing in window boxes outside. I took cuttings of a lime green and a deep purple. Both have rooted already! I'm going to root a lot of these as small cuttings and winter them over in the greenhouse for spring sales.
|Rooted in one week!|
Coleus, mint, pineapple sage and lots of other plants will root in water. Try a few cutting - what have you got to lose but a few leaves and you may get lots of "Free" plants!
