I have a Monstera (Fruit Salad) plant growing outside
which is about 10 years old and about 2meters high.
Can I cut this down to 1 meter and will it grow again
from where it,s been cut.



Where abouts are you David ? A Monstera is a Swiss Cheese Plant, a tropical climbing aroid that will only grow outside in warmer countries

Put your location on your profile David - we have members all over the world and nobody can give you the right answer until they know roughly where you are!

If it doesn't already have new shoots from the base, the base may be too old to produce them now. I would treat the top as a giant cutting, in case the stump doesn't sprout.

How do I say thanks?
