Hi Ryecooder-
Yes you certainly can! You can take 8 inch cuttings. Plant them in a fast draining moist potting soil and water sparingly. Give them plenty of light and they should root in a few weeks. Let them go dry before watering again, because they are prone to rot. Fertilize when new leaves appear. Good luck!

Thanks for the quick reply kasha777 :) should I cut it where that brown notch is?

Actually, I'd cut that whole branch off to where the new growth is growing straight up. You want your brugs to grow vertical. Best wishes and welcome aboard! :)
