Hello all. It's been such a long time since the photo at the beginning of this thread was taken, and the plant is now long and straggly - and no longer compact (well, relatively compact ^_^/> ). Anyway, would appreciate advice on how I can "re-configure" the plant.

What I mean is - can I just trim it off near the base, and let it put out new branches? Will it even put out new branches, for that matter. And can I replant the trimmed off portion? if so, will it propagate only from the terminal portion, or can the trunk be cut up into several shorter lengths to generate new plants?

Thanks in advance.

I've a non-mature plant on my corridor which I chopped down due to lack of space. The stumps soon produced new growth. I did not re-plant the chopped sections unfortunately, but you should be able to root them and get them growing again. Then you'll have 2 plants instead of 1.

you can try to chop the stem at the lower end and it will grow back.

by then you will get a few off shoots.then the plant will be compact.

and also plant the other chopped end into the earth and don't water it for 2 weeks to avoid rotting.
it will root later.

Thanks folks for your inputs. That's what I got from googling as well, but just wanted to be sure, and especially if anyone had done it before.

cheers!
