Mexican Bird of Paradise Plant

I cut a limb off a friend's bird of paradise plant and planted the limb into a bucket of organic soil. My question is, will it grow and can I eventually plant it into the ground?

Not likely. They are difficult to root, requiring cuttings made from soft wood, kept moist with greenhouse misting, treatment with chemicals, and base heating.
However, seeds are supposed to root easily after a few hours soaking.
