Second spring in our home in MT, zone 4b. Can't wait to see what comes back. Lots to learn but loving the folks at GT!

@pretty_paws_29 after you asked I remembered sticking a leaf in water a week or so ago... Looks like it'll work just fine!

@gjones I didn't either! Someone asked for a starter and I wasn't sure how to go about it so I figured it was worth a try. It was really fast!

@gjones @pretty_paws_29 I just learned that unless there's a piece of the main stem attached, you won't get a plant. Only a rooted leaf! Ha! Good to know 😉

Good to know- so will the one you rooted just remain a leaf??

Yes. I thought I was seeing new growth but apparently whatever I was seeing had been "set" before I put it in water.
