Dieffenbachia amoena (dee-fen-bok-ee-ah ah-mee-na)
Vegetative Propagation for Cane Cuttings:
Some plants such as Dieffenbachia and Dracaena can be propagated from cane cuttings. Two- or three inch cut sections of the cane can be placed vertically or horizontally in the pre-moistened rooting media. Be sure that each cane section has at least two nodes.
Stand the cane in rooting media. New leaf clumps will form at the exposed nodes and roots will form at the buried nodes.
Lay the cane horizontally, making sure that half is buried in rooting media. New leaves and shoots will form at the exposed nodes while roots will form at the buried nodes.
