Q.I Have An Older Potted Indoor Geranium That Was Getting Too Tall And Leggy So I Pruned It, But Improperly. After Observing The Pic

Zone 18235 | Anonymous added on June 20, 2021 | Answered

tures I sent, can you please advise what I need to do to keep this plant less leggy, more bushy and fix the pruning problems? I don’t want to lose this plan as it has great sentimental value but as you can see one of its stems is getting brown, I don’t know if that is normal Or if it’s starting to rot. How do I fix the pruning problems in this and make a nice healthy plant out of it? What is the proper pruning technique? I can’t seem to pick it up from what I have seen online. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Pruning it by 1/3 will help, but it looks like it needs more light. Stretching is common when the plant needs a little more light.
