|I am not sure the name of this plant, but its getting to tall. Can I just bury the stalk more or whats the best way to handle it. Thanks Michael

|Burying the stalk would likely kill the plant, so I'd not do that. You can probably just cut it back, although one of the houseplant folks will likely have a better idea of where/when to do that. It's my general understanding that most houseplants are tropical plants that want to be huge. If you've ever traveled to Mexico or other tropical places, you will see how they look in their native setting - usually quite striking! And huge.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

|Hi & welcome!
Looks like some form of Aglaonema commutatum (Chinese evergreen.)
Agree, stem cuttings stuck in soil take root easily. The stumps will grow new stems.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
