China Doll

Some of the branches of my China Doll plant are curling down. Is this caused by insufficient water or light? Additionally, the plant is more leggy than bushy, but does show new growth. I have recently pruned some branches with yellowing leaves thinking that will help.

When any plant tends to get leggy indoors (or even outdoors) it is often associated with limiting light. Indoors yellowing leaves (interior and lower) is another indication of a light condition. We have had a very dark winter so far, so things should improve from here on out as we should be getting more sunshine and gradually longer days.
