Hard to see, but one of my firesticks cuttings is growing a root or two. I was just about to give up on them, too! The other cuttings look like they are thinking about growing roots, as well. so I am going to leave them in the water. My daily dose of new growth!! 🌱💚 Thought you would be interested in this @Jenny10

Thanks @cyndi && @midnightgardener !! 🥰💚 I've had much better luck with rooting cutting in water rather than in soil 😊

That's awesome! 🤗 How long did it take? I know they are supposed to take a long time.

Be careful with the sap in that plant. Especially your eyes 👀

They can take a while to root, I've got lots of succulents currently in water, some root really quickly, others take longer. But I found it's an easy way to propagate 😊

@Jenny10 && @angiecrazycatlady I've had these cuttings since Christmas and just the one has barely taken root. The others are close behind.

Yes @tastar7 they are euphorbias so they secret liquid latex when cut. I will be very careful. Thank you for the advice 💚🥰
