Schefflera cuttings- how big is too big?

kateanne(11)July 25, 2013

I recently moved into a condo complex that is nestled up next to the grounds of a luxury appartment complex. Yesterday I managed to pry open the unused door from my walled in lanai, and found that I am about 18 inches from their back fence and they have been neglecting their landscaping. Aside from some scraggly morning glories that I pulled seeds from (the vines were creeping under the wall, which is what piqued my curiosity in the first place) there were a number of schefflera saplings growing through the fence. They are rooted on the other property but have poked thru the chain link fence and have grown 2-3' against my wall.
So if I cut say 2 feet off can I root the whole trunk? all the googleable info assumes you want a new plant, no help in pilfering the whole thing.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You're only limited by what's convenient for you. They root very readily, no matter what size.
