Small Schefflera arboricola grove

Post  Tom Simonyi on Fri Apr 18, 2014 2:43 pm

I regularly defoliate my scheffleras when they are healthy and in active growth.  This one was defoliated a couple of months ago.  It is 10 inches in height from the soil line.      Tom

whaddya mean "4" ???
i only see tree... Wink
(said in my best bed-bug eddie grant impersonation)

i have a soft spot for tropicals as i always had a bunch of "cool trees" before stumbling into bonsai...
and since then i have been curious about scheffs for bonsai...

regarding these tom, do you reckon they would bud out from a trunk chop ?
if so, what time of year would you think is best ?
(my guess would be late spring, early summer if outside ?)

Hello, Kevin....good to hear from you. I have routinely trunk chopped scheffs. over the years....I would recommend doing so, as you say, during their active growing season, which here in northern West Virginia is July/August. Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Tom

Kevin the "4" refers to 4 trunks, which is avoided in oriental cultures. And see how much better it presents in the latest pictures with 3 trunks, a more comforting number. And Tom its looking good. My big Shef... has just been brought into the house and is not very happy. These make great plants. I put mine outside in summer in bright sun and the leave become very very small. Please keep us up to date.

Was about to post the same response, Kevin. Seems to be a lot of differences in 'correctness' between Japanese and Chinese trees in pots. I respect the differences, but I think there's an advantage to using all possibilities in artistic expression. It's all good. It's the melting pot in me, I guess.
