cut the nodes into a "t" shape on the bottom with the roots in the center

bury it

It is better to travel well than to arrive.

no just the bottom of the "T"

the leaf should be above the substrate

i've also take a few strands and wrapped it around some wood, we shall see how it goes

I bury until the leaves just stick out of the substrate. Otherwise, my MTS uproot them. I don't think it's the best method, but it seems to working fine for me.

I love it attached to wood. It grows more vine like and will reach out all over the place. It grows super fast, so expect to trim it weekly, but it easy to trim.
