If you are looking for books on propagation, many national horticultural societies have their thorough books on the topic. In the USA, ours would be the "American Horticultural Society Plant Propagation"; in England, their book would be the "Royal Horticultural Society Plant Propagation". Just insert your national horticultural society's name in "_________ Plant Propagation" and something might appear online.

On the other hand, there are many useful resources online that can accessed for free. For example, Arizona's MG Manual is online for the public to use. Then, Organic Gardening's website has information on plant propagation.

Iken Edu's YouTube channel has this cool video explaining artificial plant reproduction:

Instead of using the rooting solutions suggested, there are threads here and here on permies briefly discussing rooting plants. The main thing necessary for successful propagation is keeping them moist and safe from disease. Also, for protecting a plant from disease and sealing a wound, honey could be substituted for grafting wax or parafilm, maybe.
