Whoa, your brother seems to be a hot head.

Anyways, do you have anything you can use as a pot? Like a yogourt container or something? If yes, take it and do a few holes under it. Do you have access to any kind of soil? Like, your garden outside? Just use this temporarally.

Once you get a pot,(you should get one like right now at a greehouse or something. Even Wal-mart has some) put your plant in it and use good potting soil for succulent plants. I think your plant is a succulent.

If you are only leaving the plant in a jar of water, you can put it in a cup of water(it is basically the same thing). The plant can live in a glass of water. That is what I usullay do to reproduce a plant from a stem cutting.

Your plant is definitly a succulent and putting it in water will ikely rot it..it need to be in pourous well draining soil soon as you can.
