A friend has just given me a two-foot high cutting from the stem of a 
rubber tree.   Right now it's sitting with its end in a jar of water.   
How do I plant this?   Do I leave it until it grows some roots?   Do I 
put it into soil immediately?

How do I take care of this plant over time?

Thanks to you experts, from a complete plant novice.
