Anyone have any success propagating String of Turtle leaves?

So I ordered a string of turtles (peperomia prostrata) from an Etsy vendor and as I was unpacking, the package filling/stuffing they put on top the pot pulled off tons of leaves. The plant was also sitting in soaking wet soil so obviously with their delicate roots, everything was rotting and mushy.


Its upsetting because I paid for a plant and it was practically dead within a couple days. There are some healthy leaves with what appears to be a tiny “stem” attached and I’m wondering if maybe I can propagate? I’ve search the internet, but it seems like most people propagate with the vine attached. I could really use some advice so I don’t feel like this was a complete waste. - TIA!
