    So, I am aware that this is a method to clone plants - you cut the leaves from a plant and then just grow them? What I don't understand is where you grow the cuttings and how they grow? Can someone help please thanks!

    There is a very good MYGCSESCIENCE video which explains all of this.

    Cuttings from a plant to create a clone, you have to take more than just the leaf. You need a stem (not the main stem of the plant!) it will have a fair few leaves on it and you strip off the bottom leaves only leaving a few at the top. You bury the part that hasn't got leaves into potted soil and it will grow like a normal plant. It will start to grow it's own roots!

    You're welcome, I know that one with personal experience. My grandma likes gardening so she taught me when I was quite young how to take a cutting (clone). Also, if you have anymore Biology related questions I may be able to help as that is one of my stronger subjects.
