I have had an attack of mealybug (which I treated), but as part of the clean-up I removed the old leaf stems from around the rhizomes. Now, the leaves do not stand up by themselves. How do you suggest I support the leaves

Put about 4 thin cane in around the edge of the pot and tie some garden twine right round them all to hold up the leaves. or you could use some old twigs from shrub clippings to stick in the pot around the edge. It looks a pretty healthy plant, anyway, Russ. Annie

Also, give it more light, if possible, and feed with a high potash food.
