Remove shoots, longer than the finished cutting, just above a leaf on the parent plant.
Aim to make a cutting not more than 10cm long. Use a sharp knife to cut just below a leaf joint and remove the leaves from the bottom half of the cutting.
Reduce leaf area by half to minimise water loss from the cutting.
You may wish to dip the base of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, tapping off any excess. Using rooting hormone increases the rooting speed and successof the cutting, but it isn't essential.
Insert cuttings into 7cm pots of moist cuttings compost, keeping lower leaves just above compost level.
Push in thin canes around the pot, then cover with a clear polythene bag held in place with an elastic band. Place cuttings in a warm position, out of direct sun, to root.
