Cut a four to five inch long stem cutting (with at least three to four leaves) from the tip of a healthy Swedish ivy.
Fill a medium sized pot with a good quality, well draining potting mixture, containing perlite, peat, vermiculite, or sand.
Place the pot in a saucer containing water to allow the potting medium to suck the water. The purpose however, is to make it moist, but not dripping wet.
Pinch the lower leaves of the stem cutting and dip its lower end in a rooting hormone before planting it in the pot. Make sure the leaves on the cutting are well above the potting mixture.
Cover the pot with a plastic bag but make sure it does not touch the Swedish ivy cutting.
Place the pot in a warm room that receives indirect light.
Do not let the potting mixture dry out until the cutting has developed roots. Mist the soil lightly with a spray bottle whenever the potting mixture feels dry to touch.
Once the stem cutting has developed roots, remove the plastic bag.
Prune a Swedish ivy plant once a year. This plant begins to decline when its stems become hard and wooden. Pruning once a year would ensure that you always have a fresh looking, thriving plant.
