China doll tree pinching and prunning to keep layered look

Zone Torquay Vic Austrailia temperate/coastal | Anonymous added on February 18, 2018 | Answered

what part of the plant do you pinch. I have a new 2ft one that is 1 good thick stem and layered lateral branches that looks bonsai-ish, and stunning. Do I pinch the new growth between stem and branches? or is there another way to keep this simmetry and japanese type look. I dont want multi stems.

You can control height by cutting tall stems back to 1/2 inch above a leaf.
New growth will grow from this cut point.

If you want the plant to grow thicker, cut the plant back to a inward pointing leaf.

If you want the plant to grow wider, but at an outward pointing leaf.

Outdoor plants can be pruned in spring and summer.
