dieffenbachia baby

Zone Abbotsford BC | epicbarb added on September 6, 2015 | Answered

My dieffenbachia baby was propagated off of the tall, spindly plant and now the baby is turning into a tall, spindly plant. The baby's stock is only a half inch in diameter. It has two leaves with one new one started. How do I create a thicker stem? Right now it is healthy and only about 10 inches high.
