Hello,

my umbrealla is growing wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. I had cut the top stem when this started but it has sprouted from there and continues to be wide. I assume this is bad but what can I do about it.

Maybe its a bit like a child - it will end up doing things its own way, whatever you say or do?

So love it for itself!

Ha, I do love it like a child so I don't want it to topple over and die.

Put it in a heavy ceramic pot and give it a cane to lean on.

Just prune it to the shape you want.
