Or you can take a cutting from what is known as a mother plant. You take a strand of the plant, cut the excess leaves and dip the plant in rooting solution that you can find at any home garden centre. Once that’s done, you place the plant into a tray, about a centimetre deep, and give it a little mist.

At this point, you need to start watering the plant. But be careful not to over water.
