Neatnhe Bella or Parlor Palm - one stray stem growing...
I have this Parlor Palm in a small plastic pot which I bought about 2 months ago.
One stem has been growing much faster than the rest of the plant. It is much taller, more sparse and it also shows some browning on the leaves.
I had another plant like this before, which my husband managed to kill by under-watering (I was away over the summer). I remember it had the same symptom like this one though. One stem grew much faster and taller than the rest of the plant.
What causes the plant to act like this and what can I do to change the situation? Should I just cut off that stem?
I heard the Palm has a certain "growing point" and that you must be careful not to cut that part because otherwise, the plant will no longer grow.
Also, given the pot it came in 2 months ago seems quite small, do you think I should re-pot in something slightly larger?
