Well, the air-layering experiment (as described in a previous post) was a success. Within about six weeks of its procedure, our little patient produced a profusion of roots in mid-air. Severing the main stem just below these roots, I repotted the whole mess and crossed my fingers. Here you can see the schefflera several months post-op; things are progressing marvelously.
No more non elective surgery, kay lady?
Because the main stem was bent, I installed a rudimentary staking system. I realize that it looks ugly, but cheer up Scheffie! Only a few more months before your braces come off, and then you'll definitely get a date for the prom. Well, probably anyway. In the meantime, shut up and focus on your schoolwork.
