Q.Promote Growth For A Schefflera
I have a Schefflera plant for which I would like to promote growth. I recently re potted and pruned roots that had become root bound. There is one stalk that had been topped which promoted growth from lower on the stalk. That growth broke off as the plant fell. I rooted that stalk and placed it in the same pot with the original stalk about 6 weeks ago. Both are green, sturdy, and appear healthy. However, they they are now growing though I provide adequate watering and food. Is there anything I can do to promote growth? Cheers, Allen

You might try cutting back on the fertilizer. Scheffleras don't require feeding so too much can be detrimental. Once a year is plenty. Also check your lighting conditions. They need bright, but indirect light.
