While transplanting my Dracaena into a larger pot. I noticed what looked like a stick or root laying in the soil that had shook loose. After looking closer its a underdeveloped nodeI think. Its about 5 inches long. It's not dried out, and the soil it was in is still good.enter image description here It's strange... I'm wondering if this is still alive? And if so, what can I do to get it going? Help out if you know. Thanks!

Because it is white it looks alive; they are tough. The first ( and only ) one I bought was a 3 inch length dry stem ; but I forget if I rooted it in soil or water . I think potting mix would be best but not critical. 60 years later I have descendents.
