Schefflera from Hades
This schefflera has been neglected in my husband's office. It's a dark office, northwesterly facing and plants can't be placed to get the good light that does come in those windows. On top of that I forgot that she didn't get repotted earlier, so she's been sitting in her Ikea peat moss "stuff" for over a year. I put the little Ikea pot inside the one she was supposed to go into and then promptly forgot that that nice new pot I was looking at never had the plant potted in it. And, the office isn't exactly great with watering. I wonder if that peat moss mix is dry beyond redemption, but I'm going to try. Plants sometimes seem to handle the worst stuff and still make it. She's and a really rough year, and looks it.
I've trimmed her straggly stalks down quite a bit. I've read that you can trim them to 6" but I wasn't sure about trimming off all the leaf nodes. If I trim to 6" will she just grow all brand new shoots from the roots? Opinions on what I should do to rehab her?
I have no idea why GW wants to display this picture sideways.
