Dracaena Plants

My TALL skinny trunk dracaena

Zone 01982 | carolinaelizabeth added on May 28, 2017 | Answered

I have a dracaena plant I've had for years. It has two stalks and is about 9' high. I would like to cut it down as it's grown too tall with a few curves in the trunks and now doesn't look attractive being that tall. I hate to cut it and throw out the frons ... What should I do? If I cut it back, will new frons grow back? Thanks in advance for taking time to answer me. Elizabeth

You can prune the plant back to where you would like new growth to start.
It will take a few weeks for new leaves to sprout.
