Answer: It may be that you tried at the wrong time of year. Cut the dracaena stem down now, while it is actively growing. With the top part, cut it into sections (each should root) and then use the very top (with a topknot of leaves) and plant it in a pot all on its own. The stem can be cut into 3-4 inch long sections and you can either set the bottom portions in moistened potting soil or let the cut ends callous over for 24 hours and then lay them sideways on moistened potting soil and cover over the ends with potting soil, leaving the centers exposed. I think you'll have great success with your cuttings. To hedge your bets you can dip the bottom ends in rooting hormone prior to setting them in the potting soil. Best wishes with your dracaena.
