Starting From Cuttings
Cloning your green friends
And simple? Let me tell you:
1) Cut: Using a new sharp blade, cut a 3"-6" segment at a 45-60 degree angle just below a leaf internode (where a leaf meets the stem). Cut away all blooms, and trim excess leaves. Take several cuttings to insure success.
2) Dip: Dip the cutting immediately into a rooting hormone (available at most garden centers). If for some reason you can't, then store it in a glass of water until you can. Cuttings should not be allowed to dry out!
3) Plant: Plant the cutting in a sterile growing medium, mist, and place under a clear dome of some sort. The dome should be ventilated, the light indirect, and the cutting misted several times a day. Don't over-water, or you'll experience rot. When the cutting can stand on its own outside the dome for several hours without wilting, voila!
