Judy on Jun 20, 2017,Bryan, I have no idea what a Althea is, but what I would try is cut the stem, on a angle. Get a small jar, be sure it is clean, and put luke warm water in it, and get a baggie. Then, cut the stem you want to root, and cut it on a angle and put it into the bag, over the luke warm water. You can use a rubber band, on the jar, to hold the stem into the water. If you cut 2 holes, then put one more in it. I always use 2, just in case one dies, the second one will usually do fine. Let this root very well, before you plant it. I would put this on my porch, or in a protected area, because it is a very young plant. Best wishes, J.Helpful Reply
