Put the newly cut stems in water in a vase-like jar or glass covered with an inverted plastic bag at cool room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
The bag goes over the jar/glass in which you've placed the Basil, and the Basil's stems sit in the water. Cut the stems a half inch from the bottom before putting them in water as that makes it easier for them to take water.
By maintaining high humidity, the bag keeps the leaves from wilting.
