Upon transplanting, use potting mix, which is looser. Plants can also be started from a cutting of an existing plant. Cut a tip, about 3" to 5", as long as it's not absolutely new growth. Pinch off any flower buds and remove any large leaves from the lower part of the stem. Dip the stem in rooting hormone and then plant in a contained mixture of two parts sand to one part peat moss. The cutting is ready to transplant when it develops its own roots and begins to anchor itself in the soil.
