Choose green stem that is not old or woody.
Cut below leaf node with clean scalpel so you end up with a 4-6-inch long stem with two healthy leaves on top.
Remove any flower stems, flowers, or buds.
Dip base of stem in rooting hormone powder and tap off excess.
Plant stem in flower pot filled with potting mix, burying lowest leaf node one inch deep. You can add several cuttings to one pot.
Water deeply and allow excess water to drain.
Cover with loose, clear food bags if humidity is low (40-50% is ideal).
Grow in warm location with indirect light. No hot sun.
In 4-8 weeks, move to individual pots when roots have established.
