Hi everibody! very interesting...i am trying this myself...i have a cut off stem in water which seems to survive pretty well...still green and healty, but it has been in water for more than two monts now, and nothing is happening...any suggestion? i have noticed, while discussing this method with people from around the world and comparing pics, that those who had success with getting keikis from stems in water all had the same greenish algae in the container...could this mean that the stems like the algae after all?
what is your experience?

It probably only means that their water will support algae growth well. Stems in water seem to tolerate some algae without much of a problem.
If you get a thick algal bloom it prabably means that there are too many nutrients in the water or even that the stem is rotting. I like to change the water every week or so if I'm trying to get growth and I never use tap water directly. Mine is usually R/O water with a little non-R/O water added to it.
