How to Get Orchid Tree to Spread Out

lonni added on June 2, 2012 | Answered

My orchid tree looks like a skinny bush on a STICK. How can I get it to bulk out or spread in growth? If I top it, will that help to get more horizontal growth?

If you nip off the terminal bud (the top 1/2 inch of growth), this will force the side shoots to grow out.
