I have a hanging philodendrum plant that's about 1 yr. old & is flourishing. It's getting extremely long. Can I trim back some of the long vines & if so, is there a special way to trim it???

You can cut the overly long stems, making a cut just above a leaf. The plant will respond by sealing up the pruning cut and developing a new stem. You can root the cuttings in water and end up with several philodendrons. Enjoy!
