I have a 20 year old umbrella plant that has taken over an entire side of a bedroom! The top has now hit ceiling and bent over by about three feet. It has seven branches already coming out from the base. The main stem looks like the bark of a tree as it has turned brown. I need to prune it and wonder can this be done. I would also like to know if this plant could grown safely outdoors?

I have a lovely angel wings plant which is green and turns red as it get a lot of sun. it also has small pinks flowers. It is growing great but I think there are too many big leaves on it. Can I remove the bigger leaves so that small leaves can have room to grow or will this kill the look of the plant?

I'm trying to source the double flowered "apple-blossom" variety of pelargonium. They're available as plugs or plants from Thompson & Morgan ( https://www.thompson-morgan.com/flowers/flower-plants/patio-plants/geranium-appleblossom/p02824TM )but they don't deliver to Irealnd. I can't find seeds listed in any of the online catalogies. Are they available in Ireland?

Phalaeonopsis with multiple spikes
I have a phalaeonopsis in a southern exposure window for about 8 months now that has done very well. After the first flowers wilted, I pruned the spike down and got two new offshoots from the spike, each of which carried a full load of blooms for several months. Throughout all this, the plant has seemed very healthy and has grown a couple of new leaves. About 3 weeks ago, just as the second set of blooms were beginning to wilt, new spikes began to develop at the base of the plant. There are now seven growing! There is also one that appeared in the soil several inches from the base of the plant. My questions are: 1) Should I allow all 7 of these spikes to continue to grow or should I prune all except on or two, and if so, should I keep the older (lower) spikes? 2) Is it likely that the spike growing from the soil away from the plant is a baby and if so, how can I determine when the best time is to separate it from the original plant? Any guidance that can be offered would be helpful. I’d love the idea of numerous spikes covered with flowers of course, but don’t know that this is feasable or even a good idea. Anyone run into this before? I am new to growning orchids and this moth orchid is my first attempt.

musty indoor cheese plant
Cheese plant very large and beautiful, i moved this to my bedroom due to lack of space, but it appears to be giving off a musty/bad odour. i completely changed the soil/compost and also the planter, wiped the leaves and stems from base to tip but still the musty smell pervades, it is upsetting me i have to say and wonder what i can do, the bedroom is not small and is airy, i never noticed this in its last place, the sitting room, where it stood on the top of a high cabinet and crept along the ceiling! what can i do next please?

With great interest I read Rachel Darlingtons article on Orchid Rescue but she didn't tell me what to do with the plant when it has finished flowering. Please let me know do you re-pot? water? feed? . What temperature it needs etc.

I have a hosta growing in my garden which gets eaten by slugs every year before it gets a chance to grow. Could I expect it to do well indoors if I were to dig it up and pot it?
