Take note of how many hours per month you spend keeping plants from growing too big for the space they're in. You could've spent that time enjoying a nice, sustainable activity, such as loafing.
Plants don't ask you how big you want them to be. If they're programmed to get 100 feet tall, they always try to do so. So if you want an 8-foot-tall plant, you need to choose one that grows to 8 feet at maturity. Then you'll never have to trim it. Plus, it looks better and is healthier when left alone. (And you'll look so relaxed in that hammock.)
