My gorgeous Pilea was moved in my 2.5 months absence and dropped all the lower leaves and is now 4 long stems with heavy leaves on top, like 4 crowns. It is so heavy as the stems are really tall, so it is almost tipping over.
See photos. (before and after). It happened pretty quickly as it got moved from a sunny very bright kitchen to a different part of the flat, which didn't have the same amount of constant light..

Can I do something about this? Like cutting the stems and re-pot the four stems into 4 different new pots, as we do with 'Pilea-pups'?

Looking forward to some tips...
