Layering is a quick method of propagation made simple with the purchase of electrician’s safety staples. These hardware items are quick and easy to use. Find a stem for propagation, remove a few leaves where the stem will be submerged into the soil, then secure the stem under the soil with the staple. When the cutting has rooted and is ready for transplant, the coated top will help you find your stem. You can then reuse the staple until Hawaii’s rust gets the best of it. As of this date, 100 grey ones at Home Depot cost less than $3. I bought these orange ones at Yamashiro’s in Kaneohe.
