Norfolk palm house plant
My Norfolk Palm plant is hardy and doing too well. It has, in size, outgrown my house. It stands 5'5". I enjoy it a lot and wonder if I top it down to my desired height and let the shorter little shoots come on if it would continue on looking great? Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks.

I believe you are referencing a Norfolk Island Pine.
These plants can grow very large and tall, and often outgrow a home environment. Topping the plant can be harmful to the plant.
I often suggest people donate the plants to schools or nursing homes where they may have higher ceiling heights.
