I don't take whole plants in as that has not been successful in the past.
Cuttings have always worked well for me.  I keep mine on my light stand as I
believe cuttings need the extra warmth and light of the house to get a good
hold.  They may still be under stress as the house stays 62-67 F and the
light is just older fluorescents.
I assumed the flowering occurred on 9 out of 28 cuttings because the plant
portions I cut may have already initiated buds.  I know to avoid these
portions when selecting good candidates for cuttings of other plants, but
perhaps they just weren't evident last Sept to the inexperienced eye.
