I could not find anything else around the house to prop this up that wouldn't potentially harm the plant.. Soo this is it! Lol it has worked well since. I just fill the water back up until it barely touches. #roots #propagating-dracaena #propagating #propagate #dracaena #buddha #improvise

Do u find having it barely touch the water is better than submerging? I did a chop on a very old draceana recently and I don't wanna lose either peice of it...

I completely understand that feeling! 😬 I did have it submerged for a little bit in the beginning and it hadn't done much. This is actually the same situation as your having. I chopped down my dracaena too! Lol Try it and let me know what happens 😁 @heatherdirtyhands

@taylork I guess since it isn't my first go at this and submergingnwver helped I was hoping that way would be a success. Ill give it a little longer and try that way. I guess its a learning experience even with all the deaths along the way....where Are u from btw?

Yaaaaaaay! We've got #roots 😁 This makes me happy! I experimented with this! I tried both soil and water and the water didn't let me down! NOW if only I knew how long to let it grown like this before planting 🤔 lol #dracaena #propagating #propagate #new-growth

@cyndi how often do you think I would need to water after planting?

I would wait for roots to get longer.

Soak it one good time after planting(let completely drain excess water out) then only when it needs watering again check the soil about 2nd knuckle deep to see how dry or damp it is. Water only if its dry(ish) don't let get bone dry tho.
