With very little knowledge at all I took a few back in august, dipped them in rooting hormone and put them in a pot of compost which I left in pretty much the sunniest spot of my garden for a few weeks.
Then I read about stripping all but the top 2 leaves and putting them in partial shade (did I mention I used stems with flowers on?) so removed a couple that had already died and stripped the others. After a few weeks 2 more had clearly faltered, but the last one is growing strongly and has put out new leaves, it looks good.
I'm not sure why you covered it with a plastic pot, I just put mine in area partially shaded by trees, and despite doing everything wrong 1 out of 5 has taken - I wonder if you are being too protective and just need to let your cuttings get some fresh air and filtered sunlight?
I have been meaning to take some more cuttings but have not found time - have I left it too late now?
