So I have two smaller FLF's (about 2ft) that are doing well (I'm finally getting the hang of their intense needs). I'm limited for window options for them, but have them up to a N/NW facing window, and they seem to be doing well! They both have been putting out new leaf growth, but they are very close together. The trunk height does not seem to be growing much even though new leaves are sprouting.

Is there a good suggestion to help get the trunk to grow and also thicken up?

Don't let the floor vent hit the containers and give them more light. Other than that you are doing a very good job taking care of your plants. Let the top inch dry well before watering. I turn my plants often so they sun all over evenly. Good job with your plant, thanks for sharing.

Its growth will be determined by time and light. In weaker light, the space between the leaves will be greater, but the stems will also be thinner and more leggy-looking. In good light, the stem will gradually get thicker as it ages (time) and the leaves will be closer together. Your choice, but you can't have both.
