Leaf cuttings?

how exactly do I make a leaf cutting. I have no idea how to do one so walk me through the process. thanks.
It's quite simple really. First take the leaf you want, gently. Then Pull down and make sure to get some rhizome(white part at the bottom) Then lay the leaf on it's side, and cover the white part with CP soil. In a few weeks, you should see little shoots. And oh yeah, welcome to the forums!
Just some more added details,

I suggest putting a cover (or place in terrarium) over the leaf cutting if growing outdoors to avoid possible drying.

The leaf may turn black (the trap is not needed, just the leaf), and that's OK, it may still grow a shoot.

Be patient, it can take 4-8 weeks to see results.

Have fun
