|The process is the same for all tip cuttings (clippings) but not all plants will root from clippings so you may have to experiment a little. Take a 3-5 inch cutting from a stem or branchs, dip in rooting hormone and then place in a loose planting medium and covered with a clear cover. Then place it in a bright spot out of direct sunlight and in a few weeks it should be rooted. Some plants will root in plain water without rooting hormone so try both ways with your tip cuttings. Good luck!
