My AV is growing into a ball shape - what gives? (newbie)

jbrady33February 21, 2013

I have 2 - one is the flat, spread leaves shape I expected. The other (pic attached) is growing all crazy, big leaves, little leaves, tall instead of wide and flat. Flowers occasionally but drops them quickly, still growing like a weed! Anything I can do to tame it back into normal AV shape?

Looks like you have 2nd or sucker plants growing in the same container. You may need to separate them into another container.

I agree with Lonnie. It looks like two or more plants in the pot.
You should separate them into their own pots. When you re-pot them, remove a few leaves from bottom of each. Then place in large baggie for a week or two, until they are re-established.

Thanks All!

The 'mother' plant is looking mighty sparse right now :)

There were 3 full sized suckers growing in there!
