Q.Propagating Roots From Avocado Branches

Anonymous added on January 31, 2012 | Answered

My houseplant is about 10 feet tall and I want to make new plants from the branches. I read something about wrapping moss and plant starter on the branches to start roots. Can you help me with this? I think it is an avocado plant, but the leaves are a little broader, dark green, and waxy. I rescued this throw-away in the winter almost three years ago.
