: Anyone have info on pruning a corn plant? Not the flowers, its too young to bloom. I mean the leaves, they're getting too big for the stalks.


Hi John,

Never heard of the leaves getting too big for the stalk. Just cut it off wherever you want it to be shorter. Then you will probably get two stalks growing out just below the cut stalk that remains. You can also root the cut stalk in perlite or even just water.

Click on the plant that you have listed on the left.

Look here under stem cuttings or air layering for your dracaena.
