The Q&A Archives: house corn plant

Question: Can I cut the top of the corn plant off and put it in dirt to grow. My plant is too tall. please help

Answer: Dracaena fragrans (Corn Plant) can be pruned to reduce its size. Cut the stem at the height you desire and new sprouts will develop which will eventually have leaves. The top part that you remove can be rooted in a sandy growing medium and it should root without problem. Enjoy your corn plant!
