Creat a garden where you never knew you had rooom for one: indoors on a windowsill with eastern or southern exposure.
Start a windowsill garden by taking cuttings from some of your favorite indoor and outdoor plants and rooting them in water.
Use pruners or a sharp knife to cut a 3 to 4 inch stem, strip off the bottom leaves and place the cut stem in a small container of water.
If you like, choose colorful containers and set them on a windowsill for a pretty effect.
Although it doesn't suit every plant, rooting plants in water is the easiest propagation method. Change the water in the containers weekly because stale water turns cloudy and detracts from the attractiveness of the arrangement. More importantly, bacteria may develop and create unhealthy medium for the plants. Enjoy cuttings during the winter months, then transplant them into containers and set them outdoors for the summer.
Most plants thrive only a limited time without soil in which to spread their roots. When you transplant rooted cuttings into a garden planter of potting mix, remember that the roots they form in water are fine and delicate. Keep the potting soil mix moist to avoid shocking the plants and to allow new roots a chance to grow.
However, cuttings that are rooted ins oil should be watered once when they are planted in a planter of soil to begin developing and not again until the soil is almost dry.
