     Take 7 cm cuttings, dip in hormone rooting powder, and grow on in very gritty compost or MPC/50% perlite mix.  Water in, let drain, put in propagator with lid, not in direct sunshine.

    Very gentle. You don't want to cook them. If you have a shaded place in the house, that should be enough. For the same reason, don't put them on a sunny windowsill.
