I bought two smaller shefflera at Walmart, under $5 each, good. But yesterday I went to our local nursery and saw a very large one, about four feet tall, that was more "tree like" it had a trunk, and then filled out at the top. How would I encourage my shefflera to grow like that? I cut off the lower leaves of the one shefflera, and just left the other one. Will this work?
I was about to buy the one at the nursery but the $392!!! pricetag stopped me. I live in Fort St John, BC, way up north and the selection of plants does leave a lot to be desired. I am not getting a cham until the end of May, and would like to have everything ready by then. I will be traveling to Edmonton to get it, and can pick up plants then too.
