Bermingham asked 10 years ago

The plant is potted in a kitchen corner below a slanted Velux skylight (about 13′ tall). There is an abundance of leaves at the skylight and very little below. Can I prune the entire top from time to time to encourage growth further down (as it was in the beginning).

Like all plants, it is growing towards the light. You can cut off some of the top in April and make sure to water well and liquid feed to get it going.
