Anybody know how to root this plant? I've cut branches off the main plant and would love to root them. Any suggestions?

I've not grown this one before, but being a succulent, pretty much all you do is stick the stem in some moist, not soaking wet, but moist potting mix.

Sometimes they do take awhile .. make sure you have a leaf node under the surface of the soil. I've found that if you keep the soil just moist, more on the dry side succulents tend to make roots faster.

Making 2nd attempt but putting stem (including leaf node) into the damp soil...fingers crossed. Thanks all!
