My houseplant has grown too tall, but I don't know how to stop it from growing more.
What type is it, and does anyone know how to prevent it from growing too tall?

-Tall palm-like tree with large single alternating leaves.
-Green stem with rings and remnants of old leaves
-We cut the lower leaves ever so often.
-It continually grows more leaves at the top
-We had to support it's weight with a stick.

Thanks for your help!

If you feel adventurous…Consider air layering….It's not as difficult as it may sound, and the rewards are great!
