Clipping to make an offspring

Zone Oregon | clf614 added on July 28, 2015 | Answered

I have a climber, not sure what it is. I believe I have two plants in one basket - purchased at a store like a box store or grocery store two Christmases ago as a short little thing. Now the vine part is about 8 ft long, fine by me I love it, but I would also like to clip and make new plants to give as gifts. How would I go about this? I know some plants you can clip, put in water and wait for the roots, then put in soil and some you put in soil as soon as you clip. I realize I have not given a definite description but if you could give an idea based on what I've said it would be great.

I think either approach would work for this plant. Roots may develop more quickly in water, put the clippings will root just as easily in soil that has some part sand.
