I have 3 Christmas cacti that need to be repotted( root bound) I am wondering if I can trim the roots and put them back in the same pot?Read More
I have a lovely plant/tree that continues to grow upwards despite the ceiling obstructing it. I've moved it to a room with higher a ceiling but that won't fix the problem long term as it will keep growing. It also stops growing "leaves" on the lower portions of the stalk/trunk. I have no idea what kind of plant it is - I'm not a green thumb! How should I maintain it? Can I trim the top? I thought that would kill it? Many thanks, AarynRead More
