Needless to say that my partner and I will probably never have to worry about running out of Cordylines, lol.  He has 1000s of them around the place, no kidding.  Of course that doesn’t stop us from propagating them.  After all, when it comes to the less common, or even rare, cordylines we are always looking to buff up the supply.  Here are the steps to do the same with your cordylines.  In fact this can be done with a number of plants, especially those that have a “woody” like stalk.
