Keeping your plants in the same sized pot will slow their growth a bit but eventually they will become too tall. When that happens you can cut the stem several inches below your desired plant height and plant the top of the plant in the soil next to the original plant. This way the top will help disguise the bare lower stem of the original plant and as it roots it will grow upward. If you keep pruning and rooting the tops of your plants you will always have a pot of dracaenas at just the right height. Enjoy!
