Last winter I bought a mass cane and accidentally froze it in my car. I decided to keep it and see what happened. I was thrilled when the leaves started to regrow. But they started close to the bottom of the cane. Should I cut the stalks off since the leaves are well below the top?


You should probably cut the cane down, I would bet that the upper portion has died back. Squeeze the cane near the top, if the bark feels like it is loose, has a lot of give to it, that is a good indicator that the root system is no longer feeding that portion of the cane and the interior of the cane is dead. Cut it back to a place slightly above where it feels that the cane is still solid.
