I have two ti plants that I left outside during the winter and the bottom leaves froze about two feet up. New leaves have come in at the top but now trunks are bare up until the top new leaves. Can I cut the plants back? This would take off all of the leaves at the top leaving a bare trunk. What can I do to make these plants pretty again? Thanks.

Yes, you can safely prune your plant back to about 12 inches from the soil line and new growth will sprout from the cut stem.
Keep you plant in a warm, humid location to promote growth.
A nice bright location, but out of direct sunlight. Mist the plant 2 to 3 times a day.
