A while back I was given a Dracaena (I'm not sure of the species, but its leaves are narrow and about 12 x 0.5 cm) that was in pretty poor shape (it was grown to around 1.3 m high and had three branches) but I took a cutting, placed it in a jar and roots have emerged. The longest roots are now around 7 cm long. I really quite like how it looks, and it's putting on good leaf growth as well as the roots. Could this be a long term setting for the Dracaena? The only potential issue I see so far is a wet stem up to about 1cm of the water line, I'm unsure whether this may cause issues in a few weeks/months.


Yes, but make sure you change the water every 5-7 days. For getting more details and experiences, please visit this page.
