When the seedlings are several inches tall, transplant them to larger pots or to the ground. If planting from cuttings, select a healthy stem that is at least 6 inches long and has several leaves. Cut the stem at an angle and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Plant the cutting in a pot with well-draining soil and keep the soil moist.
