Remove a healthy leaf, lay it on the cutting board and, using a clean, sharp knife, cut it into pieces the size of a large stamp. Each portion should have a vein down its length.
Fill pots with compost. Push leaf pieces down into the compost, standing them upright as shown and ensuring that the cut vein comes into contact with the compost.
Water from above to settle the compost around the cuttings, then seal in a clear polythene bag and place in a warm, light position.
Leaf cuttings take several months to root and produce shoots. Once large enough to handle, pot them up individually.
