Q.Propagate Thai Basil From Store Bought Cuttings

Zone 8b | CAVENDISH added on September 5, 2012 | Answered

After buying Thai basil from store, I picked all the leaves to use and put the cuttings in water. The cuttings were rotten after a few days. Is it possible to grow Thai basil from store-bought cuttings? Are there any tricks that I need to know? Please help. Thanks.
