I've always had sucess by pinching off the plantlet, then sticking it in a
small pot of suitalbe potting soil (a pot maybe 4" wide), and then keeping
the soil moist everyday for about 2 weeks. The moisture will create root
growth, so it is very important to keep it moist every day. Also, you can
put 5-6 of the plantlets into a larger pot and soon enough you will have a
full grown houseplant!
Also, some people prefer to 'root it' in a glass of water, for a few days,
but i've never had any luck with this. Hope this helps...
