25 years ago I bought this Schefflera.It was about 8 inches high. It outgrew my house.I didnt know you could prune it so I gave it to my neighbor. They had it for 10 years and recently asked me if I wanted it back since I moved into a bigger house.
You can see the condition of it isnt very good. Originally it had more then one stalk. For some reason they took it out. Now its huge, lanky and to big for the pot. The plant is about 8 feet to the top of the stem.
The leaves are dropping like crazy.
My question is Is it to big & old to cut off?
would I be better off to wait until June to cut it off or take a chance and cut it now?
Or should I do cuttings and is there a better time for root cuttings.
Its about 4 feet from a south window. I Cant get it closer because of its height.
I am in NE PA.
Thanks in advance
