Lucky Bamboo Cuttings? ((Dracaena sanderana))

Lucky Bamboo Cuttings? ((Dracaena sanderana))

I picked up some really long Lucky Bamboo stalks (18") this week and they
are too tall for my vase. If I cut them in half or by 1/3rd will the lower
portion (with the roots) sprout new branches and will the upper portion
(with 2 branches each) re-root?

And yes, I realize this isnt bamboo, but this question isnt about species,
just propagating what I have.

thanks!!

Each section of the dracaena is capable of growing roots and starting a new
plant; if you cut it in two the bottom half will continue to grow and if you
put the top half in water it will grow new roots and become a separate
plant. Regards --
