Ready to pot up ?

What do you think, are these roots long enough to pot? I feel like getting my hands dirty. Thanks (in advance) for your feedback! #PropagationStation #Trandescantia #TransformationTuesday #HappyPlants #NewGrowth #PlantAddict #Propagation

These look like they're probably ready for soil. When you plant them make sure you water them well and keep the soil a little more moist than you otherwise would to give the roots a chance to acclimate to their new environment.

In a month or so they should be pretty stable and you can treat them like the mother plant in terms of watering frequency.

Think of like when you were a kid and got out of the bathtub after being in there forever. You don't want the roots to shrivel up like your fingers used to ๐Ÿคฃ
This beautiful and trendy plant is east to propagate and grow. One way is with water as @Harat9 has done. Another way is to stick a clipping in soil. It will root. I would say your clippings are ready to pot. ๐Ÿฅฐ
They guys will transplant fine. But I would wait a bit longer to be safe and give your roots the best chance to get established.
@tmbryant37 @Pegster @calvina excellent! Thank you, I will take that advice. Crossing my fingers they acclimate to the soil well. ๐ŸŒฑ
@Harat9 I agree with @tmbryant37 and I always do what @Pegster said. I always take clippings and put them directly into soil. I didnโ€™t root these props when I did them. I just stuck the clippings in soil. But when you do plant them you do have to be gentle with them. Treat their roots and the clippings like they are tiny babies.
