Yes, you could try using some strong (5-6 mm) aluminium wire or you could strap it to a straight metal rod with some adhesive tape. You could do this at anytime but I think early spring would be my choice.

Thanks Dan, very helpful. I'll look at getting some aluminium wire. Is this better than copper?

If you use copper wire then wrap it first with some masking tape to prevent it from marking the bark of the tree.

Here a Glauca of me, bought it a 5 years ago and never did anything with it,
apart of giving him a bigger pot and some feed and water.
Like mine i think you could use a bamboo stick to straighten the stem.
Dan's nice tree gives a little hope.
Why you do not try Taxodium, it is a lovely species to?

Hi Sunip, I've not heard of the Taxodium but just had a quick look at it on google. Looks very pleasant actually, I might look into this! Very Happy
