I'm going to add an image. I would like to know what this plant is and also if you notice it has grown on an angle..I'm panning to re pot should I let it go at that angle or plant it deeper to try to straighten it up some? Should I put it in a large pot right off or go up gradually?

I think if you go to a much larger pot, you will be able to set it more upright without planting deeper.

This looks like a Pachira aquatica (Money Tree). You can pot it up to a larger pot, but I would not go larger than a gallon size pot. And you can easily straighten up the plant when you repot it if you'd like it to be more upright.

On another note, looks like the tie that is holding the trunks together about half ways up are starting to girdle the trunks. I would loosen those some and move them to a different section of the trunks.

Whenever you repot, sitting a few rocks around the base of the trunk will help it stay upright. Don't plant deeper than current soil level (as a rule for repotting almost any plant.)

Lin, I haven't looked at it on my phone, but on the desktop there is a new little icon underneath each photo. To me it looks like a tin can! That is what you click to add the photo to the database. I just noticed it today.

I think Lin meant that she doesn't know how to create (copy and paste) a database URL link in a post from her phone.
