Hello. What is this plant?

Asked November 10, 2018, 12:17 PM EST

This first plant I received from a friend and don’t the name or how it’s cared for. Next, I’ve had this plant for 25 years. First, what is the name of it? Second, I can no longer keep it safely upright in my LR. Can it be cut down and propagated. If so, what steps do I take? Or, do you know of any place or person who would want this?

Ramsey County Minnesota

The first plant is a ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia). Go here for care instructions:

The second plant is a kind of dracena, perhaps green dracena. Go here to learn more about this plant and how to care for it:

The following video shows how to propagate and renew an overgrown dracena.:
