The best way to do this is with a pop bottle cut in half or a large clear plastic bag. Just make sure to air it out every other day to get fresh air in and to keep fungus down.
An afterthought, I've never tried keeping the humidity high while rooting in water, but that might be helpful as well.
Thanks for your input!
I wasn't sure it would root. I remember my Mom used to root different cuttings in water so, I tried it and it worked with the Ginsing Ficus. Much to my surprise. I didn't even think about humidity but since you mention it, I don't think it will be an issue for me. I live in Florida and it's humid here all the time. I will watch it carefully and look out for fungus which is something I hadn't even thought of.
