A How to Guide through How to Complete Stem Cuttings
Cut Off a Section of Stem, by selecting healthy growth that's 3 to 6 inches long, and make a sharp cut.
Remove the Lower Leaves by clipping off the leaves on the lower half of the shoot so you have a bare stem to insert into your potting mix. Dip the end of your stem in rooting hormone, which will help cuttings root more quickly.
Immediately pot up your cutting in moist potting mix, sand, or vermiculite. Keep your cutting humid by loosely wrapping it in clear plastic or keeping it under a cloche. It usually takes a month or two for your cuttings to root and become established enough that you can plant them.
