I've had this plant for several years. Originally it was 3 stalks in a pot. The other 2 died some time ago, but I've tried my best to keep the big guy alive. It goes through periods of doing 'okay', and periods where I'm removing brown/yellow leaves constantly. I've tried watering it frequently (once a week), and less frequently (maybe once every 3-4 weeks) but neither watering regime seems to help it flourish. It's gotten so bad now that I was just about to bin it, but I noticed 2 new buds growing which stopped me in my tracks. The buds are growing right at the very base of the plant, pretty much at soil level.. Strange!? Any ideas how I can help this thing flourish? There a couple of completely dead limbs on top that I don't think are going to produce leaves again. Should I prune those off completely? I was wondering if I could remove the dying limbs and set them in their own pots to see if they would grow? If I do that, will the main stalk grow new limbs up top again, or will it just continue to only grow new shoots very low down on the stalk? I'm attaching pics that might better illustrate this!
