Salvia Stem too thin
    #1308825 - 02/14/03 09:05 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I have been growing a cutting of Salvia for a while now and it is thriving....however the plant is growing too fast and the main stem can't seem to catch up. It appears to be too thin. I am worried that the plant will fall under its own weight. Is this normal or do I need to take measures? Thanks!!!!!

what you can do is cut it up in a few pieces and  make cuttings, that way you'll have more plants too :laugh:

You can cut off the very top of fthe plant, that should allow for growth of the lower portion rather than continued upward growth.

I would transplant it into another bigger pot and cover soil up higher on the plant. it would be more stable that way, and also get a better root system.

When the plant is young you need to give it strong wind by the use of a fan. It needs to shake and wobble. This will cause the stem to get fatter and stronger.
