Cutting a large indoor plant back
Thanks for the help. I have a huge umbrella plant that is taking over my sunroom. It is ready to topple over. I don’t want to kill it.

You may be referring to Brassaia actinophylla, a Schefflera. This houseplant tolerates pruning. Take a look a the publication from Clemson for more information and care. To keep plants small, prune just above a leaf. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/indoor/foliage/hgic1511.html
