The Q&A Archives: How to prune a dieffenbachia?

Question: My dieffenbachia is about 6ft tall. It is top heavy and has lost leaves in the bottom, so it topples over in the pot. I've had to tie it to a stake, but it still leans over bringing the entire pot with it. How do I prune it back? How do I grow new ones from the cuttings? I've heard of air layering, but seems complex.
