I would let the 3 pieces callous over for a couple of days and then stick them in a pot with good draining potting soil, I always use perlite added to my soil, I do 50/50 Smiling Other member will have advice for you too

as well as, keep the original base plant, but be very careful with the water, don't add any water since there are no leaves using it up.

So sorry that happened! I usually drop at least one or 2 plants per year, and ALWAYS on the carpet.

I've never let a Dracaena cutting dry. I've always stuck them right back in a pot immediately.

Luckily, it was not on the carpet but I'm still sad because the plant was really nice. But hopefully I will have 4 nice plants in few years Big Grin
Thank you all for your help.
