One of the dogs in the office chewed on the plant and caused it to completely break off and fall over.

Can I just cut off the yellow part, stick it in the soil, and wait for it to grow back? Also, what should I do with the broken stump?

Lastly, why might some leaves have turned completely yellow on the non- broken off part of the plant?

Your feedback will be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Broken Dieffenbachia

Step 1
You can put the yellow stump in rooting hormone and hopefully it will take and be able to grow again.

Step 2
Put the rest of the plant back in the soil. It may be in shock, but this is a hardy plant and I think it will come back.

Step 3
Yellow leaves is a sign of overwatering. Water evenly.
