What’s Going On With My Pachira Aquatica?!
Firstly - I'm not even 100% sure it's a pachira aquatica... It seems to have a really, really dry trunk (especially at the base of the plant) but still happily growing new stems and leaves. I haven't seen any photos online of this plant growing like mine, should I have been guiding it's growth? Is it going to die because the the main stem is so dry? Should/can I propagate the healthy newer stems? Thanks in advance!
