Dracaena's are notorious for bare stems. Hopefully you have a nice tuft of green leaves at the top of the stem/cane. If so, this is normal, and you can prune the plant. Dracaena's usually put new growth up close to the cut, so make your pruning cut lower than you might think. If you make the cut higher, you haven't reduced the center of gravity which is what you are really trying to do. (Hope this makes sense!) You can put the cut tip into a container of moist soil and it might root in time. Your pruned canes will not show new growth immediately, it might take up to a month. A good fertilizer would help stimulate new growth.
