When plants grow lots of foliage in the spring, prune a 4-inch stem cutting. Cut the stem just below a leaf node. Remove leaves on 1/3 of the bottom half of the branch with pruners. (Do not tear off.) Dip the roots' ends and place down to the first leaf intersection in the damp, well-draining, seedling mixture. Tamp down around the stem to secure them. Use a 2-3 inch container with a 5 inch deep base with deep drainage for the roots to grow. Set it in bright, indirect sunlight while they are rooting. The soil needs to be at 70°F. Check the moisture each day and add misting to the soil (not the leaves) while the roots establish. After 3-4 weeks, roots will begin to form. You can tug onto the stem to ensure the roots establish after new growth begins. Place the cuttings in the morning sun for a couple of hours each day to harden them off. Increase the time each day and check to ensure the leaves aren't getting sunburnt. Once they have transitioned into the sun, you can transplant them to the garden after the roots are mature.
