Tetrapanax Root propagation

Hi all,

Ive just received some nice T-rex roots from a kind person, so in need of a bit of advice on the best way to propagate them.
Ive seem multiple methods but what is the best?

Also they are around 10cm long each - Can I chop em up into 2 and double my chances?

Cheers in advance

Ben
