Neanthe bella - repotting question
I've been given a parlor palm that has seen some less-than-great care over the years - the bottom half of the stem/trunk is thin and spindly, while the top half is nice and thick. (Amazing what repotting occasionally will do...)
Once I get rid of the HORRIBLE case of mealybugs, I'd like to repot it - my question is, can I bury the spindly part of the stem? It has little nubs up and down it that look as if they'd like to form roots, but I just don't know enough about this type of plant yet to know for sure.
I'm told that it came as a seedling in a floral arrangement in the early 1980's - it's almost 3 feet tall, and I sure would like to help it come back if I can.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
