Rooting question - Umbrella plant
I have water rooted my umbrella plant several times without any problems. Both cuttings did well - the stem left in the soil always branching off with new shoots and the stem that was put in water rooting pretty quickly to be repotted with the parent plant.
I've been entrusted by a friend to fix her umbrella plant that was too top heavy. It was 3 stalks about 12 inches tall each with a beautiful mound of smaller leafed branches. Hope I explained that correctly. I cut the stalks in half putting the top halves in water. The potted halves have already sprouted new growth but the halves in water haven't done a thing. They're still green as can be but no growth - no roots or no growth on the plants. I did this about a month and half ago and the new growth on the potted halves came in about 3 weeks ago.
Her plant is a different variant than mine - her plant has the smaller leaves and stems and the stalks are much thinner than my plant. When I prune and root from my plant the new growth typically starts about the same time as the roots on the plants in water so I'm getting worried. Am I worrying for nothing or is there something I can or should do?
Thanks in advance!
