Q.I Have A Tree Philodendron That I Started In 1969. Can The Trunk Shaft Be Cut And Re Potted.
This plant shaft is 7+ feet tall. Plant has fallen over several times & broken. I have separated shafts and repotted siblings over the years. Live in Austin TX area kept outside in summer, inside in winter. Can the original trunk shaft be cut in half & the upper part be transplanted using the air roots to nourish the plant. After 51 years this plant is very special to me. I await your reply

Yes, you can cut it back and insert the new plants directly into potting soil and they should root.
