Find a healthy stem of the plant you wish to cut from that is at least 5 inches long, has ample leaves and at least one bud.
Cut the stem below a node (ridged joint) at approximately 4 inches length.
Remove any low-hanging leaves from the stem cutting.
Place the cutting in glass of water, making sure the nodes, from which roots will sprout, are submerged.
Move the glass with the cutting to a sunny window.
Replace or refresh the water as necessary over the next three weeks until roots are established.
Plant rooted cuttings in potting soil when roots are sturdy, which could take a couple of additional weeks.
