I bought a scheflera plant (umbrella plant) and have had it for 4 years. It now reaches the ceiling in my living room and is growing at a slant. I don’t want to cut it - is there any way around this? If I cut it, how do I do it and how much do I cut? Please help, we all love this plant.

These plants will tolerate a heavy pruning, but if you want to play on the very safe side, do not trim more than 1/3 of the plant back in one season.
