    Hi,

    I just cut about 15 cm of my Dracana Marginata in order to have more branch.
    Now it`s been 3-4 days I cut it and at the place where I cut seems to dry.

    I include a close picture as well as a general view of the plant after cutting the top.

    What should I do to prevent it from drying more ? Should I cut 1 more cm and then put some paraffin
    to pretect the top ??


    Thanks for help

    Thanks, I cut about 1 cm of the dry portion and apply some non toxic wood glue since I dont have paraffin !, seems to seal well the top of the trunk .
