    It states that they can be put together for a tree looking effect , which this is what has been done with this one , problem is , it will not stand on its own . It has 3 stalks coming out of the dirt , and they are no bigger then I would say a pencil size around , I placed a stick in there to hold them up. and they are growing all kinds of way , my question is , will the stalks get bigger enough to hold up the tops of the tree and if not , what do I do if anything to maybe train it to stand on its own . Thank you for your help.

  4. Each central stalk will become big enough to support the top. Using a stake to stabilize the plant is fine for now. If you want the plant to look like it has a tree trunk you will have to remove a few of the lower leaves. As for training it to stand upright the position of the light source will play a large part in this. The plant will tend to grow towards the light, so you will have to rotate the plant once a week to keep the stems straight. Keeping the proper water moisture will also help. If the plant is over-watered the stems will be weak. With proper lighting and water moisture, the plant will strength and the stems will grow stronger and straighter. Good luck and keep me posted.
