Growing basil from a snipping

Growing basil from a snipping - student project

So, my basil plant was dying... ;-(

I took a scissors out and cut a snipping off and put it in some water.

The pictures below show the first little root that sprouted and me planting it.

I waited until the plant had a few more roots and pulled up the old, dying plant. I then planted the little basil in it's place, remembering to pull off a few of the big leaves before doing so.
