Q.Swiss cheese plant (cutting) going limp

Zone St thomas | Candace1234 added on October 19, 2019 | Answered

I bought a Swiss cheese plant cutting a few weeks ago (at which point had no roots).
Now it has about 3-4 inch roots that are healthy & going strong!
The problem is, A new leaf came in & it seems to be lighter green & somewhat limp, it’s been a few days, leaf is fully unrolled but no signs of change… should I pot it now or maybe change the location ? Other leaves look great & I change the water every morning.

Yes, it is time to start thinking about potting it into a light seedling soil. There are not enough nutrients in tap water to allow for growth, but you don't want to over-do it. A seedling soil mix is light, yet contains just enough nutrients to help initiate rooting.

Here are some articles that will help you to care for the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/swiss-cheese-plant/repotting-cheese-plants.htm
