Assuming you mean the common green or green-and-white-leaved houseplant, then there's no reason to cut the stems off the plant unless you don't want little plants hanging down several feet from the mother plant. Leaving the stems on won't harm the plant in any way. Here's a plant that is horribly root bound (and will be until I repot it in March or April). ...

Maybe. It is very difficult to get enough artificial light to grow plants to maturity. Most of the ad looks like advertising ( no surprise). A very important number is lumens , the amount of light, not given . A temperature spectrum ( ad - 2900 K) only applies to incandescent lights and halogen and metal halide ( as I understand it) . You want the frequency ...

I would suggest: change the water more often, use de chlorinated water if available provide more light when there are roots, take a straight edge razor and cut the tip off, this will cause more roots to grow

This may be a partial answer, but I suspect there are root problems. Notice that "line" you mentioned, saying the trunk is darker just under it? If you gently scratch the outer bark with your fingernail (as little as possible), you may see the color of the inner layer of the bark. You may even compare the color above and below the "line" ...

Due to the leaf shape, growth habit, and glossiness, I'm getting a "croton" (either a hybrid member of the enormous Croton genus or one from the the less common (to me, at least) Codaeium variegatum species). The yellow variegation is more in line with C. variegatum than any of the hyrids I've seen, though. If I'm correct, then the plant is being ...

You can help your fern simply by misting it daily. That is the first step to try based off of the linked article. I recommend a stronger tactic for improving humidity: place it in your bathroom for a week or two and see if it perks up. If you don't have any windows in your bathroom, you could take it in as your shower pal. It will likely respond ...
