Wandering Jew plant
My wandering Jew plant had cascaded over the pot and was touching the carpet so I cut it back and put some cuttings in water as a friend wanted some saved for him. I had rooted the cuttings in water and they had done well, but today when I went to plant it in a pot for him to take home, the stems kept breaking off; they were so brittle. Should I have just started the cuttings in Rootone instead of water? I know the original plant was started from cuttings from my neighbor's plant. I don't recall how I did that, but we put it outside in the Spring and Summer and it grows crazy wild and wonderful. Any secrets of rooting this plant? I'm about ready to take my original plant outside and just cut it way back and feed it with oscacote and see what happens.
