Another method folks can try that works well for me is moist long fibered sphagnum moss in a ziploc bag on a warming mat without direct light. Near 100% rooting success rate in my experience.

Key thing is to make sure the moss has been fully wrung out after it's been moistened, and to open the bag for a few minutes every few days to let in some fresh air.

Once rooted, I put it in a pot with some seed starting mix, then once fully rooted out, either put it in the ground in it's permanent spot (if that's an option), or in a pot with good quality potting soil that drains reasonably well.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

Cuttings are rooting well in coconut husk. Here's a short video update. Thanks Kaz!
