How to get cuttings from a Monstera?

Caddo Mills, TX(Zone 8a)

I have a huge monstera that I need to get cuttings from. Can anyone tell me how or where to go to find out how to do it properly?
Thanks Tina

Monsteras usually put out roots at the leaf nodes, especially lower down on the stem. I just leave the plant how it is and cut between the rooted nodes. Left for a while, the nodes heal over and sprout shoots. Once they're established they can be moved out. There might be better methods but that one works for me.

Take a cutting with 3 to 4 nodes or leaves and be sure to get some aerial roots they will transform into feeder roots once in the ground. To large of a cutting will result in death to the top portion of the plant. I usually get cuttings with 3 to 5 leaves.

Beware of getting sap in your eyes; a friend of mine just had that happen 4 days ago and he's still suffering. He did go to the opthamologist. Must be calcium oxalate crystals.
