I just got some cuttings off an Ivy, (just a regular lil Ivy) I was wondering if anyone knows the best way to get it started on growing some roots. Duh

welcome to the forum!!

just putting the cuttings in water should do it.

trim off a couple of the lowest leaves and make sure the container you put them in stays full up to just under the lowest leaf. place the container in a spot that gets some very bright light - not direct sunlight if the container is clear glass, tho. you should see some roots starting within a week or so.

Thank u Joclyn. I have tried to put Ivy in just water before, but it never rooted, so I was wondering if there was another way? I'm SO glad I found this forum, it looks like so much fun, and very helpful!

really?? wow, that's surprising as ivy is basically an invasive-type grower (and should root very easily) !!

you could try using a forsythe pot set-up...

here's a link for the instructions

and here are links to two posts right here on the forum.

i hope you have success!!
