i use rain water and i put about around and inch or just enough to cover the leaf completely. i place them in a south facing window where they get shaded sun. not alot of sunlight is needed. just put it next to a window that gets the most amount of shaded sun and you'll be good. i dont change to often. i only change when the water gets green or the bugs on the leaves makes the water cloudy and dirty. you can change every week to reduce fungus growth. its a good idea. yes i did cover my container with saran wrap for the first month but them i took it off just because i found it doesnt really matter. uh also let me say this. you can place the cuttings in water but once you start to see plant lets form, take them out of the container, put peat of sphagnum moss on the bottom then place the cuttings back in the container so now they can grow. good idea to sprinkle some peat on them. after they get large enough like mine, you should place it in full sun.

great work with the cuttings!!!! You may want to spread them out a bit more in the future, or they will grow much more slowly it seems, but at this age, it's all about establishing them, which you seem to have a very good handle on!
