You can take a few of the bottom leaves off of the main plant. Then place this in a small pot of planting medium and keep the soil moist but not soggy.
You can even place a baggie over the plant, but remove it a few times a day for air circulation. In a few weeks, give the plant a gentle tug...roots should be forming!
