Most Dracaena species will branch out when cut back.
Here is a picture of my D.marginata rebranching.

The drawback to the more branches is the slower the growth, but you get a bushier looking plant.

Sometimes branches will start but then mysteriously stop, this is normal and nothing to worry about.

The cutt off parts can easily be rooted in dirt or water.

You can put them in soil and they will root too.

I have 2 of these, I have a green one and a burgandy/green one. They both have branched and nice full bushy tops. Thumb of 2010-08-28/mekos/9fdf29

Mekos- the first one I think is a D.reflexa hybrid, the 2nd one is D.marginata for sure

Yep, I know the marginata is for sure, I remember the names when I showed you pictures on the c-mail. The other one should be there as well. It may be the Anita like I sent you. I lost the tags and can't remember. But one said it was an air purifier. Blinking

One of the most common around here. I got it for 1.00 at Lowe's on clearance, and slightly larger than the one I sent you.

I know, I got a bunch of stuff to put in as prizes in our games we play. ( BTW feel free to wipe out this chat from your thread any time. I know how it is if you want to keep it just for photos.) :thumbsup:
Got lots of really cheap stuff. Thumbs up

That would save your pictures for looking. Chat threads for chatting. It keeps you from a lot of clutter trying to find a photo fast. Blinking
