  • First, choose a woody stem of the murraya plant that has no flower. Choose a stem that is about 0.25 to 0.5 inches (0.6 to 1.3 cm) thick.
  • Use a very sharp and sterile pruner or knife and cut about 6 inches (15 cm) of the stem at an angle.
  • Remove the leaves from the murraya cutting.
  • Place the murraya cutting in a rooting medium that is sterile and well-drained. You can use peat or sand, or mix those with potting soil.
  • Plant the cutting about 2 to 2.5 inches (5 to 6.5 cm) deep.
  • You can use a rooting hormone if you prefer to help increase the chances of your murraya cutting taking root.
  • Wet the rooting medium and place the cutting in a warm bright place but away from direct sunlight.
  • The cutting should take root in about eight (8) to ten (10) weeks.
  • After rooting, you can now transplant your murraya cuttings.
