Broken Dieffenbachia Leaf

Zone 34984 | YolisGarden added on February 14, 2018 | Answered

Friends, I am so sick. A leaf from my beloved dieffenbachia has been snapped off. Can this leaf be propagated? If so, how? It’s a beautiful leaf and I’d like to save it if I can. Thank you!

Propagation of the leaf stem is unlikely. It has to have some of the stem tissue where it was attached to the main stem to propagate. But don't worry, this is a fast growing plant. It will need to have its main stem pruned back regularly. The top cuttings from pruning will root easily in water or damp soil or in the base of the plant.
