transplant cutting of Passion Flower (Passiflora alatocaerulea)

How hard would it be to transplant a cutting of Passion Flower (Passiflora alatocaerulea)? What would be the best procedure? I have a large plant that is growing on a chain link fence that I'd like to get a cutting from but I'd rather get advice here to do it right before wasting time trying it myself.

Here is a run down on rooting a cutting. Passion flowers are usually propagated by stem cuttings taken in late spring or early summer. These should be 7.6-10 cm (3-4 in.) long and taken just below a leaf. Remove the next lower leaf and dip the end of the cutting in a rooting compound. Place in 7.6 cm (3 in.) pots in an evenly moist mixture of peat moss and coarse sand. Cover the entire pot with a plastic bag to retain humidity and put it in good but indirect light. The cuttings should root in three to four weeks. Univ. of Saskatchewan
