Enhanced Branching of Dwarf Brassaia (Schefflera arboricola)
Known branch-inducing agents were applied as single spray applications to recently pinched plants of Dwarf Brassaia.These were growing in 6-inch plastic pots in a 1:1 volcanite-woodshavings mix. The automatic irrigation regime delivered about a pint of diluted fertilizer (100 ppm N, 135 ppm K) twice daily. The data were recorded 6 and 10 weeks after treatment. A final evaluation of the number of breaks which had developed was taken at week 26.
