>You can start a plant from a seed, or from a cutting.
A cutting is a piece cut or pinched off a plant. Sometimes you can start a new houseplant by cutting a piece off a big one. For most plants, placing the cutting in water makes it grow roots so you can plant it. There are some plants that can be stuck straight in the dirt after being cut and they will grow! If you aren’t sure, experiment to see what works.
This activity promotes awareness of how plants grow.
