This is a great plant in the garden. I have tried many times to propagage by root cuttings, but have had poor luck. In water, in vermiculite, in potting soil, with and without rooting hormone - the result is always the same. Does anyone know of a special trick to successfully rooting this plant?

I GOT THIS PLANT IN THE WAL-MART. IT WAS ABOUT 4" AND I PLANTED IT IN A MEDIUM SIZE POT. I HAVE IT BY MY BEDROOM WINDOW AND IT GETS SOME SUN. I WATER IT EVERY OTHER DAY AND IT HAS GROWN ABOUT 4' AND IT'S LIKE A VINE-IT KEEPS ON GOING-ALL THE WAY TO THE CEILING. I LOVE IT BECAUSE IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND SEEMS TO REQUIRE VERY LITTLE CARE. THE LEAVES ARE VERY GREEN AND HAS HOT PINK STRIPS-VERY UNUSUAL AND VERY PRETTY. I HAVE A STAKE TO HOLD IT UP AND A MATCHING BOW & RIBBON. I LOVE TO HAVE BOWS ON MY PLANTS. I AM NO MEANS AN EXPERT ON PLANT BUT I DO WELL WITH SOME OF THEM. THANKS ESPY IN EL PASO, TX.
