schloaty, N.gracilis is a fast grower but, really never paid attention on how fast it does put out growth. the one cutting i got goes back and forth into shock due to a bunch of stuff. like changing soil mix, being knocked over 2-3 times and other stuff. so at least now i don't have to worry about it falling over caused i moved it to a diff. spot in the porch. it is slow at rooting thu. i have tried it in just water like i read it could but, it kept it alive but never grew any.
