    Hi I grow a moonbell (sorry don't know exact name) or made beautiful flowers last summer. I managed to make it overwinter (barely) I in our basement room.
    I want to cut it shorter, because inside is so difficult to keep if tall, if I do so, will it shoot new stems where I cut it?
    Thanks.

    Hey Vicarious, it's a Brugmansia, angels trumpet. They take pruning very well, but do not prune until spring, pruning while semi-dormant in winter could induce pathogens.

    This is a very interesting genus. All seven recognized species are considered extinct in the wild, although they are commonly cultivated. It's worth looking up.
