I have an Ivy that was given to me, everything has been going good with it, growing slow, but not the issue today. I got a new kitten, and i thought he was to small to get to it, I was wrong. By the time I realized what was happening he broke two of longest healthest vines in half, I heard you can bring it back some how, the broken vine? I heard if you put it in water, then I heard just plant it back in the dirt... Will either of these work? Can I fix this? I really don't want the ivy to die.
I'll let someone else advise you on the best way to do it if you want to try and root the pieces that broke off, but the part that was left behind will regrow too, so even if you aren't able to get the broken off piece to root the original plant should put out new growth and be fine.
If it's Hedera, it has preformed adventitious roots and will root easily in a moist (not wet) medium. It will also root in water, but the roots that form in water are different than roots that form in soils, making the transition from water to soil an issue. I'm not saying it CAN'T be done, only that it's better to root in a well aerated solid medium. Perlite is a good choice. I just use the soil I use for my houseplants, which is quite different from any of the peat-based bagged mixes commonly employed as houseplant soils.
