Pick a plant to root in water
Add some extra colour to the garden – impatiens, begonia, geraniums, plectranthus and ivy geranium.
Herbs that root easily include – lemon balm, basil, oregano and mint
Failsafe shade loving plants include – coleus, hypoestes, philodendron, hydrangea, lucky bamboo, ficus pumila, devils’ ivy, croton and spider plant.
Trees to include – twisted willow, pussyfoot willow, fig tree, avocado seed
Once plants have formed roots, they can be transferred to a seed raising mix such as Seasol Seed Raising & Cutting Potting Mix in small pots. Keep in a shady position as the plants adjust and continue to develop a strong root system. Water in well with Seasol and continue to apply fortnightly as the plants establish themselves.
