Starting plants in tanks?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share a quick personal story with you.

So we have lots of hydrangeas planted in the front yard. All organic and no chemicals ever used in the area.

We like growing more hydrangeas by taking cuttings and sticking them in the ground. It's hit and miss.

I know that people do hydroponics and thought, why not try it with roses.

So I took a divider(the types for separating baby fish from mother fish(the hard plastic type)), and stuck two stalks in there. It's only submersed about 3 inches and lo and behold, we have roots! And tiny buds!

So I'm thinking, why not try with other plants?

Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks :)

I do. :) I do not know what it's called, but it is aquarium friendly and that it can go out of water and have a betta in that tank.

I've never tried it with cut flowers, but I've tried it with all sorts of houseplants. I want to try vegetables next--Someone posted a vid of regrowing romaine lettuce in water, and I think that'll be my next experiment.

Could you share some pictures with us? I'm terribly curious! :)
