Hi again

Today I received these cuttings I bought from Sweden. As you can see they are very small, too small to me, and I don't know what to do. Can you help me to find the best way to can save these little cuttings? I'm afraid they are too little and weak.

RE: New cuttings again

No need to worry your cuttings are plenty large enough to root and grow into a healthy plant. I routinely root small cuttings, some no more than a single leaf and a couple of inches of stem and they do just fine. It is quite common to receive just two leaves plus a few inches of stem as a cutting of large leafed species.
Make sure you keep the cuttings in a high humidity environment and provide them with bright light and they should root for you in no time.
