Money Plant

Zone east anglia England | PEACH added on November 3, 2011 | Answered

I have recently bought a money plant. It has some small branches at the bottom. Can these small shoots be taken off and reset, or will it harm the plant? Also, I need help with my white rhododendron. It has buds on it, but the leaves are turning yellow and falling off. Should it do that this time of year?

I would give the money plant a month or so to settle in before doing any pruning, just to let it get use to its new home. After that, this should be fine.

As for the rhododendron, it should not be turning yellow. How is the drainage where it is? If it is bad, it may be developing root rot. It may also have a fungus. As a precaution, treat the plant with a fungicide.
