Propagating dracena + encourage new head at cut

plantsenseAugust 23, 2007

I have a specimem Dracena Margenata; 7 ft high with 12 healthy heads.

What is the safest way to cut & propogate the longest arm/branch which is 3/4" diameter, 4 ft long? Can I just saw it off and place it in damp supersoil? Is there a way to encourage a new head at the cut site on the main plant?

IS there a sales market for this beauty?
