Stevia can be propagated by dividing the roots during the winter with a sharp shovel. Each division can be planted on its own and will grow into a new plant. You can also propagate stevia by taking stem cuttings in the spring. The cuttings should be about 6" long. Strip the lower leaves, dip the cut end in rooting hormone and set them in a container filled with moistened potting soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and the plants will develop roots in about 4 weeks. At that time you can pot them up individually or plant them in the ground.
