I am wondering what have you guys done to propagate.
any help and info on these plants would be great.
currently I have 2 cuttings from each sitting in jars of water should I add anything to the water or just leave it.
I have also read that I should change the water every few days I am wondering if that is true.

African violets, I know you can just take a leaf with about 1/2 inch of stem on it and plant it into the dirt to get more. My mom used to do that all the time and I have gotten back into them recently. The rest I am not sure about.

I have propagated Ivy and fuschia. I usually don't change the water unless it looks dirty. I will add water to the container to maintain the water level. I don't add anything to the water. I leave the cuttings in the water until a good root system is formed. Then I transplant them into potting soil.
