Stem cuttings: These are treated just like leaf cuttings except you cut off a stem with several leaves instead of just one leaf. Remove bottom leaves, leaving a few at top. Proceed as with leaf cutting.
In both instances cover pot with a plastic bag or inverted glass jar. This will keep moisture from evaporating and keep cutting from wilting. Keep in a warm location with diffused light but out of direct sunlight. When there is indications of growth after about 3 to 6 weeks, transplant new emerging plant into a new pot of potting soil. Continue to keep a humid environment for about 2 more weeks until active growth begins.
