Unruly and Rebellious Houseplants! How Do I Control Them?
The next one is a Diffenbachia (something like that). It grew upright in the picture. Well, it grew upright until it was too tall and then fell over the side of the pot, despite the wire stands I put in the pot to help hold it up. After it fell over, it started to turn upward, towards the light. I have to admit, I kinda like how full it looks now, but is it supposed to do that? (tried to get a close up of how it turned in the 6th pic)
The last plant, not sure of the name. But again, it was upright and bushy in the pic. It grew upright and really sparse and leggy. I've tied these up as well and they fall over and seem to be reaching for the sun as well. This one is not so full and pretty as the other.
I guess my question is the same for all of these ... How do I control how they grow? Should I prune them a specific way or something? What makes a plant grow leggy and sparse? Too much/little sun?
