Water the creeping jenny the night before gathering cuttings. Water enough to moisten the soil to a 3-inch depth.
Mix 2 parts perlite, 1 part sand and 1 part sterile compost in a 4-inch pot. Thoroughly water, allowing the pot to drain for 20 to 30 minutes.
Select a young, pliable stem. Measure 1/8 inch down from a pair of leaves that are 2 to 5 inches from the tip of the plant, and make a cut with the shears.
Remove all the leaves on the bottom half of the cutting. Apply rooting hormone to the cut end, tapping off the excess.
Plant the cutting in the perlite mixture, leaving half of the cutting above the surface. Water the cutting. Arrange wooden skewers around the edge of the pot. Drape a plastic bag over the pot, bracing with the skewers so the bag does not touch the plant. Seal and cut a slit in the bag to allow moisture to escape. Place in indirect sunlight, and transplant when rooted.
