    hi bro,
    how do you take good cuttings of this species? i gave a piece to my friend, but it has a hard time, just snipped of a branch, but those dont produce good roots and i dont wanna break the whole plant apart,
    any advice?

    cheers,

    bro this was a cutting...Just tie the cutting firmly to a mount and time and humidity will allow it to root. It took a good year to start establishing roots. Of course this is a warm to hot grower which I can't give it all year but it seems to adapt to intermediate.
