Talkback: How to take stem cuttings from dracaena

I was interested in this method of taking stem cuttings and have found that it works quite well for geraniums too. I know that that may not be the correct method but it is easy and quick if you have no suitable compost to hand.


  • Hi I have got a Cordyline that has got 4/5 shoots around it's stem. It is still thriving and would like to know how do I get these shoots to grow on their own without damageing the parent plant? I have lost 1 Cordyline to frost damage last winter. Cath
  • I have a magnificent dracaena which has one stem with the leaves touching the ceiling. I am reluctant to cut down the whole plant. If I cut the tallest part off, will the rest of the plant be affected? When is the best time of year to do this?
