INSTRUCTIONS FOR ROOTING CUTTINGS
Lay cutting flat on top of the soil and mist the cutting once a day until new root emerge from leaf nodes. If the leaf node is touching the soil, the new root will anchor the plant to the soil. You can also insert the cutting into the soil (.5" deep). Soil should be kept moist (not wet) during the rooting period. Roots should form in the following two weeks. Plants should be in bright shade during the rooting period. To avoid leaves from getting burnt, acclimatize the plant to outdoors.
