Rooting Wandering Jew Cuttings in Water
The resilient Tradescantia will root from almost any cutting, whether placed in water or in soil. So, starting a wandering Jew in water is a good project for anyone, including children and gardening beginners.You should see new roots begin to emerge within a week or so. After about two weeks in water or when the new roots are a few inches long, plant your cuttings in an all-purpose potting mix, and care for them by watering weekly.
Cut off one of the drooping stems from a houseplant. A cutting of 6 inches is easier to handle than a smaller one, but any length is likely to root as long as you snip just above a leaf or leaf node. That’s where the plant will push new roots. Clip off leaves from the bottom few inches of the cutting, then put the cutting in a jar or glass filled with water. The stem is submerged in water while the leaves are out of the water. It’s fun to use a clear glass or jars to see the roots growing
Put the glass on a windowsill out of direct sunlight. Replace the water every few days, checking for roots. You won’t have to wait too long. Once the roots appear and grow to several inches, they are ready to plant in potting soil.
