I'm fit to be tied! I really am not sure what I am doing wrong. Every time I try to propagate a cutting in water I never see roots! Here is the process I normally take. I take my cutting normally just below a node on the plant making sure that there is at least 4 leaves left on the plant. I then put water in a clear plastic container so that the leaves don't touch the water. I then put them up near the window in my kitchen, change the water twice a day and mist them whenever the leaves look dry. The plants I am trying to root in water are, Bougainvillea, Oleander, and Lantana. I know people say that its so simple to do and they normally see roots in a couple days but its not working for me, They have been in water for at least a week now with no signs of roots. Feeling a little bit discouraged. Any advice or comments are much appreciated. Thanks.
Ps: I Like the idea of propagating in water because the roots will be visible. (if i can ever get it to work lol ) OH! and I know that there is a bunch of controversy about whether or not it is best to propagate plants in water or not. What is your opinion?
