5 Plants that can grow in water

Growing plants in water is quite appealing because it’s mess free, and you don’t have to worry about watering. Simply replace the water every fortnight, and fertilise with a liquid fertiliser once a month to keep them looking great. Note that if you plan on putting a root system that is accustomed to soil or any medium other than water, roots may die back significantly if not completely. New water roots will emerge. The alternative is to place a cutting in water and allowing it to grow a root system that is accustomed to water. I’ve already discussed a number of plants: Ivy, peace lily, syngonium, pothos, philodendron and spider plant are obvious choices, but in this post, I’ll be listing 5 more plants that you can grow in water.

1. Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen)
