Philodendrons are such a hardy house plant to grow and they are a favorite of mine for making plant starters. While visiting at my mom's in the mainland a while back, I rummaged around under her kitchen sink and came up with two recycled glass vases perfect to make this plant starter vessel.
You'll need glass marbles or pebbles or colorful buttons plus two clear glass vases, one large and one small. The smaller vase needs to be able to sit comfortably inside the larger vase and it should be either equal in height or slightly shorter. You can see the vases pictured are standard vases like those received from a florist.
Set the smaller vase centered inside the larger vase.
Fill the space between the vases with the marbles. Once filled, add water to the center bud vase and place cuttings inside. Set the plant starter in a window sill to catch the sunlight. Monitor water level and replenish as needed until starter is ready to transplant. Note: philodendrons do best in indirect sunlight so keep this in mind when finding a resting spot for the recycled glass plant starter. Wasn't that just the easiest?
