#DarkvsClear πŸ§ͺπŸŒΏπŸ’š
Update 3! πŸ€—

It’s been almost 12 days since my last update 😳 (sorry it took so long, I have small children to take care of lol) so, in case you wanna check out what happened last, go here!

The best practice for propagation is definitely patience! The roots EXPLODED with growth in almost two weeks!!
#1: #MarbleQueenPothos in solid ceramic - 4 stunning roots, the longest is about 2.5” long!
#2: #MarbleQueenPothos in clear green glass - 5 roots, but not as long as the other in the solid container. The longest root here is about 1.5”.

BONUS: #JadePothos in clear pink glass - only two roots, but the longest is about 2.5” as well!

I’m wondering now if the number of roots and/or leaves plays a factor in growth speed? 🧐 Both Marble Queen cuttings have 4 leaves, but the Jade has 2 and is working on unfurling a third. Either way, it *appears* that the dark container seems to have had faster growth, but I’m not ready to pot any of them yet, so we’ll see which one I feel is ready to pot first!

(Last photo is my little #PropagationStation featuring my new #HeartleafPhilodendron cuttings that I got yesterday, some more #pothos, and a #basil cutting 😍)

@angelw1975 @tango @kscape here’s how mine is going! ☺️πŸͺ΄
@saatwood wow what growth. Love πŸ’• this.
This is awesome work Skye
These roots are looking AMAZING! I’m also trying my little personal experiment on three Monstera cuttings and it also seems like the darker container is helping root the cuttings faster than in a clear vase! 🀩

This is very informative! Thank u for the tag πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–
That problem couldn’t have resolved in a better way.
This is so cool!! Interesting results. 😊 I have a hydroponic-ish heartleaf philo in a darker glass and it seemed happier once I moved it, so maybe it simulates soil?? 🧐
Not what I expected! I would have expected the clearest one to have the most growth. But that was also an uneducated guess hahah. I’m gonna have to try this with the kids
@LilMsGreenThumb yeah! I think @tango might be right that it simulates soil better, so maybe the lack of light helps? πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ but it would definitely be a great experiment for kids! πŸ§ͺ😍
