Thanks both of you. She was given it by a friend.

It is very easy to propagate (so she could give you a cutting lol)
just put it in water for a day or two and you'll have a lovely rooted plant :D
It will grow outside in summer but needs protection in winter ... and it can get quite tall too :o)
but you can always cut it cack and have more plants :D

Thanks Hywel, ah, that's what she was trying to explain to me this afternoon. She said her friend told her to take cuttings and I said I would find out how.

She could cut the top off, with a length of stem, and root it. The base will then branch out.
Looking at this photo, she could cut it about half way down.

Thanks Hywel, she's followed your instructions so hopefully she'll have a new plant soon
