Simply so, can you propagate a fiddle leaf fig tree from a leaf?

In this way, can you root a snake plant in water?

It's true that too much water can kill your plant, but rooting a snake plant in water is one of the most foolproof methods. You can also root the plant from cuttings, but the fastest way to get a new snake plant is to divide it. The plant grows out from rhizomes which mass together and multiply as the plant gets older.

How do you propagate a fiddle leaf fig?

Dip the cut part into rooting hormone then place it into potting soil. Keep it very moist for about 6 weeks or until you see new roots. If you are pruning a long branch, you can even cut it into several sections, making sure to include a few leaves on each section.
