Q.Large Tall Indoor Plant

Anonymous added on May 15, 2014 | Answered

I have a very tall indoor houseplant. I do not know what type it is, but the leaves are long and somewhat narrow. I received this plant as someone was moving and asked if I wanted it. It grows quite nicely but the problem is it has grown leaves at the top and at the bottom but not much at all in the middle. Its stalk is very, very heavy. What do I do with this plant to get it to grow evenly again? I’ve thought of chopping it down in the middle and making two plants out of it, but I hate to shorten it, as it fits so nicely in the corner of my living room.

Well, I would definitely not chop it down the middle. Would it be possible for you to send a picture of this plant? This would help us to correctly identify it so we can give you proper pruning/trimming information for this particular plant.
