The current study dive into the propagation of stem cuttings of D. canniformis using rhizome and internodes. This study was carried out in front of TAZ College inside UNIMAS in Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. The study was carried out for 60 days. Different rooting media such as sand, coco peat, and peat are used for observing the number of the shoots that emerge as well as the time for the shoot emerges (days). The obtained results were showed that the number of shoots that emerges for both rhizome and internodes is the same while the time for the shoot emerges (days) for internodes cutting is faster compared to rhizomes cutting.
