Can I Save A Dracaena Destroyed By Hurricane Ike?
Ask The Expert:
i dont have a phone that works rite now. i live in the area, scottsburg, in, where we had the after effects from hurricane ike. and i had a very tall and leggy draceana plant. two stalks and a small baby growing about 1\' tall. but during storm the plant was blown over and broke off the tops of the tall trunks. they were at least 5\' tall. can i save them? and what should do with the part that is left? should cut off shorter. the tops that broke off were beautiful and healthy and i hate to throw away if i can save. can u help? my email is only way of contact. Andrea
First take the baby and separate it from the parent plant and pot it.Â ThenÂ Take the broken tops and remove leaves so that you have a bout 2" of clear stem.Â Now take a knife and re-cut the stem off at a 45 degree angle (cut about a 1/4" off the bottom).Â Now if you have some rooting hormone dip the cut stem in to the powder and then immediately place in moist soil.Â (you can get rooting hormone at your local garden center and nursery -- I use one by Greenlight called roottone --Â always pour a little into a saucer so that the rest of the roottone doesn'e become contaminated).Â Then turn to you stalks cut them at a 45degree angle. Twenty four hours later start misting the air around the plant.Â In about two weeks you should start to see growth come on the side of the cut stalks. Â Â Hope this helps.Â I hhope that this is the only damage you received from Hurricane Ike.
