Q.House Corn Plant

Anonymous added on March 15, 2011 | Answered

I have a corn plant that has just grown too tall (4 feet or so). It has never lost any of the bottom leaves, so it doesn’t look like it’s on a stalk. Should I cut all the bottom leaves off of it and pull off the top new growth?

If you want it to look more stalk like, you can strip the lower leaves. It will not hurt the plant. As long as you nip the top in some way, how much you cut the top is up to you.
