|Does anyone know what this plant is called? I've been given it and it's not very happy looking. I would like to try and propogate it if I can.

This might be a dumb question, but if it is not growing well, why propagate it? Might it be a better idea to try something else?
The growth to me looks very slender and brittle suggesting that it needs a bit more light.
Soil seems wet and the white stuff disturbs me at the very bottom of the stem. Maybe a fungus?

|You can only propagate it by taking a stem cutting. That means cutting off the top 4-6 inches and trying to root it in a small pot with a porous potting mix. It has a fairly thick stem so it will not propagate as easily as some other plants.
Air layering is a more complicated but safer option.

|Actually stem cuttings of this plant take root quite easily.|
