    Hey,

    If you have cut back on your water and fertilizer, as you should this time of year, the plant will lose a lot of its leaves. Someone would be able to tell you if something doesn't look right if you posted a picture.

    Thank you both - the 'canes'(I did not know what to call them) are still nice and green and I had read that the den nobile was deciduous but did not know we were a cousin...I will limit water etc through the winter and await 'happenings' in spring!
