Castor Oil Plant from seed
A friend of mine brought back a castor oil plant seed from her mediteranean holiday and planted it in a pot indoors. It has grown very healthily but never has more than 4 or 5 leaves at a time as it loses the oldest leaf when the new leaf grows.
My friend nipped out the growing tip to try to encourage it to bush out but that didn't work. It is now about 30 cms high with 3 large leaves at the top of a thin stem and a new leaf coming.
Any suggestions as to what we can do?
