I just acquired one of these about the same height as the one in this photo. It has at least 2 trunks [can't remember if there is a 3rd]. Is this normal for them to have multiple trunks? Should I trim extra trunk[s] and leave only the straightest to ensure healthier growth for the main trunk? Keeping it indoors for now. Thanks for any advice you can share with me. I want it to do well & live a very long time, hopefully outgrow the house. We live in Houston, TX climate. You can e-mail me at josephine.a.eldridge@exxonmobil.com
