How long does it take?

I had a friend give me a start off an ivy plant. I had started to root when i got it so I brought it home and put it in a pot w dirt and such. It is doing fine so far but I am not exactly a greenthumb. I was wondering, how big do I need to let it get before I can take another start off it and plant it elsewhere? And how do I go about getting it to root?

  • The easiest way to get a plant like this to take root, is to put it in a vase with some water. As for cutting a new start, I usually do this when I can cut half of my plant's "arm" and have the lengh I want. For example, if you want an 8 inch piece to cut I would let it get 16 inches long.

  • Put the cuting in glass a water. Tell it roots good. Then plant it in soil.
