Essential information from fine living.
When pruning house plants, try to remember what the plant looked like when you first bought it because lots of times they get out of shape and you want to step back from it and sort of trim it back to the original shape it was in.
Pruning is very healthy for the plant. It encourages new growth on it so like in a fichus tree if it’s really, really thick, you’d what to thin it out and open it up a little bit in the center. If you have a potus or a vining plant and has really long runners on it, if you clip it to like just below a leaf, that actually will make the plant grow from the center or grow from the top again rather than heaping all these long straggly things off of it so don’t be afraid to use a pair of scissors or a pruner on a house plant because it really actually encourages new growth on it. If you have a brown leaf just go ahead and trim it. If it looks bad take it all the way off. The plant’s not going to suffer from it.
Indoor planting is a great thing to be involved in because it’s a stress reliever besides making your house look so much better.
