Q.How Do I Get This Plant Under Control?

Zone 57106 | DubbzPlants added on April 10, 2022 | Answered

I bought this plant at about 6 inches, it is now about 43-44 inches and it keeps going. I am running out of bamboo sticks tall enough to hold it up. I don’t know what this plant is exactly, an aloe vera of sorts. How can I get it under control? Or if it keeps growing how do I proceed to take care of its height?

Dividing, pruning, rooting smaller versions of itself and giving away larger plants are all ways of controlling size of invasive plants.
