For Layering Method (Wanda Brown), I would add: before covering the branch with some soil, I bruise the bark on the lower side being buried and, optional, dust with rooting hormone. Cover with dirt and anchor the branch to the ground as Wanda says, otherwise it tends to "escape" and bounce back up. I also insert a stake and tie the branch to it to keep the tip up rather than on the ground. I don't rush replanting and that's the beauty of this method: take your time. When the branch rooted well enough to feed itself, I cut the branch close to the mother plant (now you have two branches for the new plant) and leave it undisturbed for another season. At this point, you can trim down the 2 branches to get a bushier plant or leave them alone, for a taller look.

Come spring or fall, you can dig out the new established plants with less risk of them not making it in the new location.

In my experience this method works with almost any woody plant/bush. And, if you have the room around the mother plant, you can do multiple plants at one time without hurting the original plant.

I love seeing indoor plants flourishing and thriving. That would be a testament to the homeowners' ability to care and maintain vibrancy.
