I have this dumb cane plant, but it is getting tall and I'd like to cut it down to size. Found info on the internet but I need clarification. The plant was in a low light situation for a few years and grew quite tall and thin. We recently moved to a brighter location, and it is looking healthy on the top again. However, now the plant is too tall and won't support itself. Question, how hard can I cut it back ? You can see that the stem grows off the side of an old larger stem. If I cut the growing stem back to 6 inches, then there would be no leaves remaining at all. Will this kill the plant, or will it simply regenerate a new stem? I do plant on propagating the top portion of the new growing part as a back up. Any tips on that?
