Q.Elephant Foot Tree bending over

Zone Sacramento Ca | Anonymous added on May 9, 2016 | Answered

I have been the proud caretaker of an Elephant Foot tree for over 40 years. It has always been indoors and I have transplanted it 4 times. The problem is that the stalk (about 3 feet) has become top heavy with leaves and has bent over. What can I do? I know pruning is not advised and it has never flowered nor had pups. I’ve attached a pic.

think the only option is to stake it to provide additional support.
