On one of the stalks of my dwarf umbrella, all the leaves shriveled up and fell off. Will they grow back or do I need to get rid of that stalk? The other stalk seems to be doing well.

If you can do it without harming the plant, I’d check the roots. If they still seem healthy I’d leave it and maybe trim down to see if it grows back. I had a fiddle leaf lose all its leaves but grow back and it’s so satisfying!
You don’t *have* to cut it either way but if it’s dead, separating that part off will allow the plant to devote all energy to the growing side. So really your call if you want to try and give it time to regrow. Best of luck, keep us posted!
@lemrobs thank you! I think the roots are okay so I will trim it back a bit and hopefully it will grow back into itself!
@oliveh101 definitely can’t hurt to try since the other side is doing well!
I would just leave it. Maybe loosely tie the stalks closer to each other. I had a similar problem with mine. Look at her now!! She’s got new growth all up and down the stalk. I’m a happy camper πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜Š The stalk that is standing straight up I tied to the other one and Bam πŸ’₯ new growth everywhere!
@AnnMarie420 beautiful! I love how the baby leaves look on these plants πŸ₯°
Thank you πŸ’–
