To propagate this plant during the growing season, take a stem cutting in the early spring. Use a knife or sharp pruners, cut below a node closest to the end of the stem. Place the stem in a glass jar and fill it with filtered water and watch the roots grow! Replace and freshen the water each week. After the roots are several months old, add them to moistened potting soil, continue to water, and give them the bright, indirect lighting requirements. Add a clear plastic bag over the pot to retain humidity while the stem roots.
Soil propagation includes dipping the cutting in hormone stimulator and placing in prepared rich, well-draining, moist (but not soggy) soil with plenty of aeration. Keep the soil moist for approximately four weeks until roots begin to grow. You can tug slightly on the stalk to see if roots are grabbing and holding after this time. Provide them bright, indirect light to acquire the photosynthesis for growth to occur.
Remove the plant from the pot. Hold the base and turn upside down with your palm securely holding the plant. Gingerly pull the pot off the root base. Separate the plant into halves or thirds by pulling apart the roots or using a sterilized knife. Repot each in new well-draining aerated soil. Use a smaller, shallow pot for each portion. Fill each with soil, leaving an inch below the soil edge to eliminate water spillage. Water and let drain well.
