Here's How To... Propagate Houseplants.

There are several ways to propagate houseplants, and each houseplant responds best to a certain treatment.

Herbaceous stem cuttings are made by clipping a 4- to 5-inch long piece of stem from the parent plant, with leaves attached. Make the lower cut just below a node, or the point of attachment of a leaf. Remove any leaves on the bottom 1.5 to 2 inches of the stem. Dip the base of the stem in water and then into a commercial rooting hormone, which is usually a dry powder.
