hanging marmaduke

marybright(7)August 25, 2012

I was given a hanging marmaduke. I want an upright plant. I repotted and it will be outside under trees for about 6 weeks before coming in. Any chance the dangling stems will right themselves or should I pinch them off? I've tied some stems to sticks in the pot to encourage upward growth.

Mary, I think it is what it is.

I have been astonished at how quickly they move to light; some are very responsive. But I won't hope for a miracle if Marmaduke is one who sprawls: I'll just elevate this plant so it can sprawl in more comfort and remove the most etoliated stems as new ones come in.
