I brought home from up north a cutting of a beautiful lipstick red hairy tubular blooming plant of a friends. I've had it two years, and it has grown, but very strangely. It is very leggy, and the stems are so weak they don't hold up the plant.
My question is, can I put the very long stem, which all the leaves have fallen off, down into a new pot with fresh soil and leave the stem attached like an ambilical cord so the new healthier end will be kept and not die. I don't understand why it is not doing well, and has also never bloomed. Any info would be most appreciated, as I'm stumped. thanks in advance
