You want to take a nice green end or tip, without flowers, about 10cm/4inches long. Strip the leaves off the bottom 5cm/2inches. Put it in a clean glass or jar, with about 2cm/1inch of water. Put the jar on the windowsill where it gets some sunlight. Wait. Change the water every 2 days. Wait. It will start to make roots. Wait. Keep the water going. Wait. When the roots are about 2cm/1inch long, plant it. Put on some jazz and dance in celebration.
