I planted a 6 inch tall China Doll two years ago. It now has three trunks that is now 13 feet tall. I just trimmed it back to 8 fe
et tall. how tall can they grow if left alone? While trimming I found some tinny Beetles, and a Praying Mantis with baby.
It can grow to 25 or 30 feet in height.
The tiny beetles may or may not be feeding on the living tissues and causing harm; or they may be feeding on dead material. The preying mantis is a beneficial insect and predator on insect pests. They may be feeding on the beetles.
