The key phrase in your question is "for CERTAIN TYPES of plants".
Certainly cuttings of some plants will root just fine in water.
Others are reluctant even with rooting hormone, and it all may
vary with the time of year. You pretty much have to look at info
for the individual plants, and most plant books will tell you
when and how to propagate.
