Your choice of herbs
Small cup or jar
Pot or planter

Extra footnote: Plants with woodier stems, including rosemary, scented geraniums, and lemon verbena tend to have a little trouble producing roots in water, but will work just as easily in a soil-like medium. Follow the directions for growing in water, but push the cutting into a small plastic pot or tray filled with well-draining potting soil, coir, or a mix of 1 part vermiculite and 1 part perlite.
