The leaves start way too high up on the trunk. I want to prune it back to encourage leafy growth lower down but I think that the trunk won’t revert back to making leaves. I’m unsure how to resolve this, but I was thinking I could cut off the top piece, propagate a few cuttings of it, then re-plant them into the pot so that there is a shorter version of it. Unsure if that’s the right way to go.

Any advice?
