I really like this plant, and it's doing very well in my Tucson patio. However, I'd like to take some cuttings to grow a few plants elsewhere in my yard.

Anyone have any experience with or advice on doing this (making cuttings of Maireana sedifolia)? Do I just snip off a short cutting and stick it in potting soil til it has roots? Thanks in advance.
