Hello All,

The plant above, living in my apartment, is a modern-art celebrity! It is a corn plant that Merce Cunningham and John Cage had in their loft*, and as you can tell it is getting too big for its britches.

I have to prune off a couple of the runners--technically, "canes"--to keep the plant's growth in check. But before doing so, I thought I'd see if anyone wanted a cutting from this noble plant of peerless provenance. Seems shameful to just cut off a cane and chuck it.

I am no expert, but I've read that cuttings from corn plants--which are great apartment plants, since they grow vertically and require only moderate light--are very quick to adapt. Stick it in a pot of soil, standing up, and it will root in no time, I am given to understand.

So if anyone wants to come to Brooklyn Heights and get a tangible link to Merce and John, do give a holler

*This is really and for true! If you need pre-adoption proof of authenticity, I can provide it.

Best wishes,

Golden Arches
