    You should take soft wood cuttings in late spring or early summer for best propagation.
    Cut healthy stems 4 to 6 inches in length. Make the cuts just above a leaf node.
    Remove all leaves from the bottom half of the stem and dip the stem in rooting hormone.
    Place in moistened potting mix and cover with a plastic bag. Keep in a cool and bright location.
    Keep the moisture moist.
    Dig up the cuttings in 3 to 4 weeks and place the new plants in 4 inch pots.
