How Do I Prune My Swiss Cheese Plant

afrikaaner added on July 31, 2011 | Answered

We have a Swiss cheese plant that has taken over the lounge and is top heavy. How do we prune it back and where abouts on the plant do we snip off the stems? Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Afrikaaner

Swiss cheese plant is easy to prune and very forgiving about how it is pruned. Try not to rune more than 1/3 of the plant in any one season, but other than that, just use a clean, sharp pair of scissors or pruners to cut away the growth that you do not want. It makes it look cleaner if you cut near the junction of a leaf and stem, but the plant will be fine no matter where you prune.
