As long as the trunk is about pencil thickness or less, you can cut it and
root it in a glass of water. I have also rooted these rubber plant
cuttings in moist vermiculite - rooting hormone is optional.
A methose mentioned in a propagating book involves rooting a leaf with a
small section of trunk attached. I have not tried this.
