Oh my gracious! Thank you so much. I was hoping they could just be stuck in the soil. Maybe a little root starter too....Oh, easy breezy! Cut the 2 tops about 3" below the leaves and stick them in the pot(or a separate one if you want more plants). You can also cut the bare stems into pieces 4-6" long and start even more. Just remember which end is which so you don't plant them upside down. Cut the broken end that's still in the pot just to make a clean cut. Now you can have a Dracaena forest in your livingroom!
Great information. I'll give it a shot. Can I root the cuttings or just stick them in the ground like the Dracaena? I'd like to create a couple more of these. Thank you again.It's a Dwarf Umbrella Tree or Schefflera arboricola. As far as pruning it goes, you can cut off anything you don't want. They are very tolerant of all kinds of abuse. You might want to start by cutting back to a branch that is growing the direction you want and removing any that are growing where you don't want them. They actually make interesting indoor bonsai if you want to get real creative.
Happy plant parenting
