I have a red bourganvillea flowering on a south-facing window-sill.
My monstera quickly outgrows its alloted space. The leaves are about two feet long. I have found the solution is to keep chopping off the top, together with an aerial root or two and then potting this up. Once it has rooted, I decide which half to keep and then give the other one away.
Our yucca reached the roof of our conservatory and also got the chop in the spring. We had to use a saw, and took it down to just about a foot of trunk. We chopped the cut off bit into seven six-inch lengths, and put each one into a pot. We did this in February, and by April the original stem has thirteen new shoots and all the little ones had between two and seven shoots. We have found seven new homes for them!
