My cut Dracaena (houseplant) has become very tall, and now one of the "branches" has flowered. What is the typical way a Dracaena is maintained as a household specimen plant as it outgrows the configuration as seen in the example below?
My Dracaena is currently about 6 feet tall total (1.6 meters). The main trunk meristems were cut between 3 and 4 feet (0.9 - 1.2 meters). So as it continues to grow, do you typically top off the secondary side shoots (producing more side shoots?) or do you cut them off completely (promoting new sideshoots) or can you cut the main trunk (below the original offshoots) to start afresh?
What about the stem that has already flowered? (see the second example picture below) Is that branch's growth terminated by the flower? What do I do there?
What are my options in keeping this plant going long term?
