I have a money tree and two of the five stems that make up the twisted trunk appear dead and have no growth. I have recently turned the plant and the dead stems are the ones that were facing the wall in the corner so may not have had much light. Is there any way to encourage growth from these stems or are they beyond help? Thanks

The best way to tell if an area is still alive is to softly bend the stalk.If it feels alive, then it can grow again. If it is brittle, then that part of the plant is dead. You may want to give it half strength, all-purpose fertilizer to help it recover.
