They will, actually, root better with alternating wet and dry periods in soil.
Being highly invasive and semi-succulent, they hold and store water quite well. Rooting them in water will take just a little longer than rooting in soil and watering as you would a mature specimen, though they will still root in water. You just have to raise the temperature of the water some by setting it in sunlight.
