Pogostemon stellatus 'Broad Leaf'

I haven't had any issues growing this thing or how it looks. It has doubled its size since I got it and grown steadily upwards.

My question is about propagating this stuff. I was wondering if I should clip it and a new growth point will appear or if i should let it grow up until it branches out.

If you clip it right above a whorl of leaves it will sprout new shoots...but it seems to take forever. Be sure some lower leaves are present and the plant's internal machine should be cranking enough to spit out some new shoots.
