    You may want to wrap a bit of sphagnum moss around or near the basal and attach it with twine or a rubber band -- without raising the compost level, unless it's very close to the base; that's always worked for me and further encourages rooting . . .

    And Zero, I've had basals once on my now dead miranda and I treated them as cuttings and had success.

    good luck!
