what you are doing is pulling a "leaf" off of the plant ,using a downward pull, to get some of the white part of the plant. you then will plant this "leaf" in another pot. use a mix of 50/50 spag. peat and pearlite (i bought mine at walmart. it is shultz brand). give the cutting lots of light, and higher humidity, then wait. it's been 10 days so far, for me. nothing yet. like i said, i'm expecting it to be months...
did this help?
