A couple of years ago my (lucky) parents went on vacation to Hawaii. They returned with two cane cuttings for me to try and start. The first plant was a plumeria, which grew quite easily (after a slow start) from it's cutting. The other plant was a Ti plant (Cordyline), which did not grow and eventually rotted, I believe. My mom brought back one of each for herself as well and had the same luck as I did. Ever since, I have looked admiringly at Ti plants, wondering "what if...?"

Usually Lowe's gets Ti Plants during the summer season and has them in big 8-12" pots for $10-20 a piece. Never wanting to spend that much money, I haven't bought one before. But just recently I ran across a 6" pot at Lowe's with three separate shoots of Ti plant for only $3.99.

I think this plant is probably a different species from the cane cutting brought back from Hawaii, since the stalk of this plant is much smaller. But it could just be that this is a younger plant.
I haven't been able to get a correct species ID on this plant yet. The leaves are much more slender than the common Cordyline terminalis and Cordyline fruticosa. Maybe all that will change with maturity, though.
