Monstera cutting: did i do this right?

Plant Parent

I took a cutting from my monstera about 3/4 weeks ago. Is this the correct process and how long until I start seeing roots?

This is just a leaf and petiole (the stalk that attaches directly to the leaf). Monstera only propagates a new stem when you have a piece of the main vine on the cutting. This may put out some roots but will never grow a new vine.

Haha can’t wait to tell my partner he messed up. Thank you!
