Many plants will root when treated properly. Junipers the trick is to make sure the foliage receives lots of moisture. So mist every few days or place somewhere where they receive dew. Do not put in bright sun and dry winds. In a pot under the bench may work well.

Each plant has their own.moment and treatment to get them to root. Many cultivated plants, such as apple and pear, are hard to root. If they come as grafts in stores it is often a species that will not easily reproduce by cutting.

The pro is that is that it is easy to bend the 'trunks'. No long term plan, it was just a quick exercise.

Sure, I made picture for you. Can't remember how big the cuttings were. Not much smaller than what they are now, I think.
Seems I can make a lot more cuttings:
