Answer from NGA

Ti is a palmlike evergreen shrub with a strong, usually unbranched trunk that can get up to 10 ft tall. However, most of us know it as a smaller foliage house plant, before much of a trunk has developed. The leaves are 12-30 in long, 4-6 in wide. The leaves originate in tufts at the top of the woody stems in mature plants, and more or less along the stems in younger house plants. You can simply prune the stem down to whatever level you want. New stems will emerge from just below the cut.
