    What is your location, are you looking to start now ( young plants would be better ) or next season with cuttings.

      In a nutshell, the most simplest method to me is:
      1. Use a coco coir, or peat, & perlite mix.
      2. Put it in a pot and stick your cutting in. (Don’t put it in too deeply to where the cutting is at the bottom of the pot. Leave a few inches.)
      3. Water well the first time, then touch up as needed.
      4. Stick it in a shady protected spot, and kind of forget about it until it starts growing.
      Tip: Consider wrapping the upper exposed part of the cutting in parafilm to prevent dry out.
