I take the cutting I want and put it in water for about 2 weeks. Rootrs then from and it can be planted in soil and treated like a normal plant. I have just taken 3 cuttings from mine!

yep agreed i just cut them down pretty far. if you can see a root nub and cut it with that on the cutting it will root alot faster. the root nub useually starts on the vine where the leaf stalks shoot off. ( if that makes sence )
i useually take a vine with about three healthy leaf shoots and also put in a glass of water untill i see some nice white roots, them straight into soil..
just a tip for you:
if you notice that you pthos is growing more like a vine and you want it more bushy, you can take one of the longer vines and turn it around back into the soil, and bury it a little where a root nub can re-root and it will start again there.

If you want you can also add rooting solution which will make it root faster and stronger.

I skip the water part -- I cut off a piece and stick it in the soil where I want it to grow. I've never had a failure yet. Anything more complicated and I'd mess it up. I swear I can kill a plant just by thinking about it LOL

Its hard to do wrong. They are very fault tolerant
I use scissors to cut pieces off, usually aiming for mid-way between two leaf nodes. Helps if the cutting is about 6 leaves long (if longer you could loose a few leaves before the new roots develop). Put the cut end of the cutting into a jar of water. wait. once roots form, transfer to soil. Or not - i have some growing only in water for months and month. You can also put the cutting directly into soil, so long as the soil is kept damp.

Well that's just fancy. Mine would surely die if I gave them all that attention
