Can I cut the external roots of my fruit salad plant, as it is damaging the walls and carpet?

Typically, you should not cut those roots, but if they are causing damage, then it is ok. I would recommend providing a support for the roots to attach to in the future, such as a stick or trellis.

Just wanting to know can you cut those Brown scraggly things that grow off the side of the stems of the plant. Thanks Jo

These are aerial roots, the plant uses these to cling to a support.

If they are growing down and not needed you can trim them.
