Do you start cuttings of certain plants in water? Whenever I try it, this method seems to produce rather thin, wiry roots - so I was wondering if other growers used it for a particular purpose... Let me know!

I propagate lots of plants this way, very handy for things with larger leaves. I find everything that I have tried with a square stem roots easily this way. Particularly effective for larger leaved Salvias such as "Amistad" (not so good for microphylla types), Coleus and Plectranthus work a treat, works really well for Impatiens and currently I'm trying Pileas, so far seems to be working. Anyone know anything else it's particularly good for?
I am attempting to propagate Sambucus cuttings in water this spring...hoping they take!
