Experiment 2: Satin Pothos & Philodendron Brasil (Update)
โ—๏ธHey #Greggers! It has been exactly a month since I started my #PothosWater & #Pothos experiments and so excited to see people joining in on #ScienceWithGreg. I know I'm posting a lot but many look forward to these posts so I'll keep em' coming, with respect :)

๐Ÿ“ธI've left a #PhilodendronBrasil cutting with a #SatinPothos cutting in #waterpropagation for a month and these are the results. In the first picture, you can see the crazy growth the #Philodendron cutting has as compared to the second image, which is a Philo cutting rooting in 100% distilled water by itself. With other experiments, I've seen roots develop a little thicker, and although this cutting has skinny roots, look at the length! As mentioned in these posts, #Pothos have water-soluble, natural rooting hormones that they produce when grown in water.

๐Ÿ“ขI sound like a broken record, but #PothosWater and #Pothos propagation is great for those that have an abundance of Pothos and would either like to try an experiment, use #PothosWater for rooting hormone/plant food as a cost-effective way to grow your plants and/or a different way to get involved with your plants! I've been watering my #VSOH with 50/50 #PothosWater and distilled and I have seen fast growth! I'll update in a few days on that, though.

Yahoo Dariana!! This is just Amazing!! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ Keep it coming ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿชด๐Ÿ’–
That's so cool how plants propagate better with other plants! I guess it's the hormones. (:
Holy crap that's great growth! I need to update my monster pothos growth soon I think
This is awesome! Planttech did the same experiment but I wasnโ€™t impressed with how he did it. This is a much clearer experiment imo, when my pothos gets a bit larger the poor thing is getting chopped ๐Ÿ˜‚
@kscape these are awesome. I just purchased some rooting hormone. So Iโ€™m going to use it on my pothos. Iโ€™m getting a few cuttings today from a lady that lives near by me. Iโ€™m like a kid in a candy store.
