Question about schflerra amate growth
If you take a look at the picture of my schflerra amate below you'll see a big leaf to the left, a small leaf near the bottom right and a very small leaf that is just opening. I am surprised that the smallest leaf has popped up even though leaf #2 has not even began to mature.
My question: Is there a reason this happens? As well, I've noticed that although the tree seems extremely happy the new growth seems to be smaller and the space between branches is decreasing. I do have this tree right up to a window facing SW and there is nothing impeding the sun (so full sun). If you look at the big leaf you can see that some of the growth is curled inwards. It's not as apparent in the photo as in real life, and also seems to have settled due to the long stretch of cloudy days. Too much sun maybe? In any event I don't mind the curling. I actually prefer it.
