A storm came through my area the other day, and the wind knocked one of my flower pots over on my persian shield and broke it off. Does anyone know if I can just "root" the broken portion of the plant in water? If not, can anyone give me a clue as to how to root it?

Please help. I don't want to lose my beloved plant.

Thanks!

Yes you can propigate it by taking cuttings. Do you have a rooting hormone? And since you really want to save it I would try some of the cuttings in moist dirt and the rest in water just to give you the best chance of success.

Here is a link you may find helpful about cuttings:

i just got one of these. from the info i was able to find about it (not much around) you should be able to put the broken off piece right into some soil and it should root. the rooting hormone should help it along.
