Q.Purple velvet plant

Zone Council Bluffs iowa | Wayne D Steele added on March 28, 2017 | Answered

I have a purple velvet plant that I have taken a few cutting off of. Now it has a “leg” that is quite long. Should I prune it off? If so, where do I cut it? The first pic is the leg. The second is where it starts.

Thanks, Wayne.

Yes, you can prune the plant back to any size you prefer. If you cut the "leg" back to maybe the fourth or fifth leaf from the base, it will most likely grow two stems from that point. Or, you can leave it longer and use it as a hanging or trailing plant.
