Possible prop?
I still don't know much about propagation but a piece of a mum fell off from some we're selling at work and I was just wondering if it's possible to prop it

I had a friend that was successful in water propagation of a mum. She snipped the leaves and blooms as they will rot and just used the stem and made sure there was at least 1 node if not more on the stem. I'm not sure if she used any rooting hormones or not.

It's worth a try πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Š
Yes! Like @jazzyjess said you have to snip off most of the leaves and blooms. So it won’t look pretty but eventually may be
@DazzlingOasis I believe you can! Like the answer above, just cut off the lower leaves and blooms and replant. Clean cut with sterile scissors. They must have parts of the roots and some nodes. It should also be done in the spring.
I’ve had luck just sticking them in soil. A water prop with #PothosWater would be cool to watch.
@jazzyjess @jcPlantProper @HappyPlantBFF um...what will the nodes look like?πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
@DazzlingOasis they can look like joints in the stem. A lot of the time it's the joint that another stem grows out of or on a single stem think of it like the "knee" of the stem.
@DazzlingOasis the points in the stem where the leaves, buds or branching twigs come out from.
