I find cuttings take well in a 50/50 mixture of grit or sharp sand and multi purpose compost. Mine was about 4ft tall but was rather leggy, so cut it down to 6" and then chopped the removed stem into 6" pieces and buried each half way into pots filled with the 50/50 mixture. Nearly all of them rooted on a windowsill and the original plant sprouted shoots from the 6" stump that remained.
PS: I agree that they do need good light.
