Nandinas are difficult to propagate through tip cuttings but quite often they will expand their root systems and send up new canes. When this happens you can simply put a shovel between the original plant and the new shoot and cut straight down to sever the new plant and its attached root. Replant in garden soil and you'll have a whole new plant. Just be on the lookout for new shoots developing at the base of your plant.
