    HI,
    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW I PREVENT MY UMBERELLA PLANT FROM GROWING TOP HEAVY. I HAVE JUST RE-POTTED IT, AND IT IS ALMOST 5FT TALL,HOWEVER, SOME OF THE LEAVES HAVE FALLEN OFF OF THE BOTTOM, SO NOW IT IS LEANING FORWARD FROM BEING TOO HEAVY AT THE TOP. I WOULD APPRECIATE SOME ADVICE, AS SOMONE I KNOW TOLD ME TO CUT OFF TO TOP, TO FORCE NEW GROWTH FROM THE BOTTOM. CAN THIS BE RIGHT?

    @sharon

    this is true and this is something I have done myself.
    It is the same theory used for thickening hedges and the opposite to makeing a tree grow taller.

    make sure and cut just above the node/ where the leaf pops out of the stem.
    best
    peter
