Just break off a few stems and root them in water, on your windowsill. Then when you see a bunch of good roots an inch or two long coming off the stems, put them into pots.

You can also root the stems just by 'pinning' down a stem with a leaf node touching the soil. But if your mother plant is in a pot it makes it more of a problem to separate the new plant once it roots.

I root pieces of mine all the time because people see it and want it. They root quickly and easily in water or in soil. My plants grow so quickly that I am trimming mine constantly.
