Aerial stem cutlings

This Dieffenbachia 'Tropic Snow' grew too tall, almost reached the ceilng.
Besides, the naked stem looked not attracitvely.
Plants to be propagated this way: Dieffenbachia, Aglaonema, some species of Anthurium, most of climbers.



Beneath the oldest leaves i placed a small bag with wet peat,
then I made it water-tight using an adhesive tape. After a few months the roots appeared.
They were short, but enough
to plant it to the soil.
Right after potting it looked so.
It's a normal thing,
that later it lost a few lower leaves.
I didn't throw away the remaining part,
but I shortened it a little.
After 2 months the gems appeared.
A month later - the leaves . Hail!
