Keep trying! Not all cuttings will root so you'll need to take several and keep trying. Sometimes they will root in plain water. When you take a cutting, strip off the lower leaves. The leaf scars is where the new roots will form. Dip the cut end in rooting hormone and set it in moistened potting soil. Keep the soil moist and it should root. Try sticking them in a glass of plain water, as well. Eventually one or more will root. Good luck with your project!
