Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some suggestions on what's going on with my plants. My setup is a total of 4 stalks tied together, for sturdiness, in a glass vase with a small opening, in distilled water that is changed twice a month but topped up in between. It's set beside a very large north facing window. I originally bought them from home depot about 6 years ago when the nodes were only a few inches long and have moved with me 4 times.

I've a total of 5 newer (less than a year old) nodes growing off the original stalks under the water line/vase opening. I hope this means the plant is thriving! I'll have to eventually break the vase to free them though.. I believe I asked about them on here before so I won't ask about those ones again, but I do have a new question that I also can't seem to find online.

I have 5 newer nodes growing off current nodes! Is this normal (circled in red. Sry for any blurry pics)? My initial understanding was that you only had the current node(s) on the stalk and that was all (no more new growth). I've since learned from here that they can grow new ones on the stalk. But nodes on nodes??

It's not like they're the healthiest plants or have had the best starts. I've had to trim the leaves a lot in the past, yellow tips, colorless spots, central newest baby leaf dying off but new ones still growing past the dead one (that was a happy shocker too *phew*), root rot, hallow core (in picture).. are these just really lucky ones? They're by far my absolute most favourite and if we ever move to another country, I would do everything in my power to bring these ones <3

Yeah, thats a thing that happens. Those are all basically plants in their own right, if you cut one off and toss it in a jar of water it'll grow its own roots and become a seperate plant so it makes sense they'd develope their own nodes, unless Im terribly mistaken

Number 4 is not good, I read some where.

Just clip some from top and tie together to change the set number.
