Split Leaf need some help

Postby Thistle Garden » Jul 27, 2008 2:36 pm

I enherited a leggy, drropy and rootbound split leaf philodendrum and need some help to make it look a bit nicer.

I have transplanted it so the rootbound problem is fixed but it looks quite ugly. Does anyone know how I can make it a bit stronger or have it grow a thick stem? I have it tied to a support post right now but it's not looking very good. Should I trim it back?

Whenever mine started to get leggy I cut it back a bit and put the piece I cut off in the same pot as long as there was room. Where you just repotted there should be room to start another one in the same pot.
A house without a garden is not a home.
