Has anyone taken cuttings from these? Do they root well? I'm thinking of turning it, or part of it, into a houseplant for winter.

They root quickly in water. I've grown them for years from cuttings. They tend to lose a lot of leaves in the winter but soon revive. They're beautiful plants and can grow quite large with big leaves that shine. : )
