    A couple weeks to a month usually before roots start to form. Soon you will know exactly how long it takes for you to root one.. Never had a ventrata cutting fail.

    I've got a vebtrata cutting in a vase of water. Been there a few months now and can't see any roots. At least the nodes are developing leaves. It can take awhile for the roots.

    I've never used the water method, and never will.
    1) way too much trouble (changing out water? No thanks.)
    2) seems way more prone to rot
    3) IMO, it takes a lot longer. I've had airlayerings/normal cuttings root in 2 weeks. Never heard of that in water.
