Camellia Cuttings

I have a neighbor that wants to root some cuttings from her camellias. She said she heard that you can only root them in damp sand. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've never rooted camellias before. She has some "old timey" plants that I would like to try rooting some for myself as well. Any suggestions?

I worked in a Nursery, all the camellias we grow were from cuttings.
But on the Camellia forum they said most Camellias are grafted.
