can anyone expand on the preparation of woody stem cuttings for this plant, perhaps a foto of the prepared cutting? I have tried everything with no success. 2 hints I have been given were to leave as long a piece of vine as possible for the top node, since this dies back from the tip and the trick is to get the nodes to shoot before the dieback gets there, the other was to slit the rooting node to encourage callousing. Still can't make it work!
