Learn how to propagate a Dieffenbachia dumb cane, either by rooting in soil or water.


•  Dieffenbachia plant •  Pruning scissors      or trimming shears •  Rooting hormone •  Vase or container


Step: 1

Sterilize Your Cutting Equipment

•  Before snipping the stems, clean and sterilize your pruning shears or razor; this ensures that the fresh cuttings remain unharmed by bacteria or infection.

Step: 2

Slice the Base of a Stem

•  Use a sharp knife or trimming shears to cut a mature part of the stem, preferably the base, to avoid leaving a bare stub.

Step: 3

Fill Your Glass Vase with Water & Soak Your Cutting

•  Fill a glass jar or vase with fresh water. You can use tap water or distilled water but ensure the tap water is non-chlorinated since chlorine can damage young plants.

Step: 4

Refresh Your Cuttings

•  Change the water every 4 to 5 days and scrub away at the dirt before placing your cuttings back into the jar. Remember to use room-temperature water to avoid shocking your growing cuttings.
