What would I do with my wilting plant?
I believe this is a dieffenbachia. It blew over twice a few months ago from some bad storms. I was tying the stems together, but it hasn't helped. I thought it would get stronger. What should I do? Thanks

If you are rejuvenating a particularly leggy plant instead of starting with a new plant, cut the entire plant back to a height of 6 inches. Make the cut 1/4 inch above a ridge or node with a sharp blade or pruning tool. Give the plant optimal growing conditions, as described and the dieffenbachia will put out new growth from from the node and create thicker stalks.
