Press an unfolded paperclip or small piece of hard wire against the center of the branch on the ground to secure and cover it. After about two weeks, the branch will show new growth.
At this stage, you can cut the females and transfer them to your own container.
Care for new cuttings
Over the next few weeks, your new plant will develop its own root system. Remove the propagation cover and inflate the plants daily to ensure adequate ventilation. It's a good idea to drill a few holes in the lid to help with this.
It is also important that these young plants are not watered. The roots need oxygen to grow, so make sure they are properly dried. Feed the plants only water for the first few days, and then feed them a very dilute nutrient mix.
After about two weeks, when you can see the plant's root system growing strong, the plant can be returned to the larger container and replace it in your growing system.
