The citronella geranium can be propagated from cuttings made from the stems. Use a sharp, clean tool to cut a 4 to 6 inch length from the middle section of a stem, making sure the cutting contains at least two leaf nodes. Remove the bottom leaves but keep the top two leaves on the cutting. See these articles for how to root the cuttings:

Rooting hormone can be used, but is not required:

If you have a large clump of the plant, you can also propagate it by division:
