Help your money tree to become even more beautiful. Learning how to pinch back the plants
Dec 20, 2019
In the early spring of this year I planted a money tree and set it on the window sill is well blessed. Realizing that any plant stretches toward the light, I keep moving the pot clockwise to sunlight evenly accrue to all the stems.
But this was not enough: one shoots grew more intense, while others lagged behind in development, resulting in a crown formed is not correct, there was no uniformity in the development of shoots.
Having read some of the information and consulting with other growers, I found another way to care, which gave an excellent result.
Now my money mascot is a beautiful and lush crown, is a jewel of the apartment. I will share their secrets.
In spring and summer the plant develops quickly. During this period it is necessary to pay attention to. From our right actions will depend on the appearance of the money tree.
I waited for a while after landing, made it possible to strengthen the vine. Then, new processes have emerged. When they were formed by 4 pairs of leaves, I plucked the topmost bud. It is the center of the stem growth.
As a result of topping the trunk begins to branch out, and the new buds are formed, of which there are other germs. As the formation of the leaves on them, I repeat his actions.
Thus, I control the number of shoots: as a result of topping they did not grow up, but the crown acquires splendor.
Many people have a question: Why pinch just after the four pairs of leaves.
There are two options:
1. If the pinch after two or three, the kidney for germs will not be enough to ensure they will be arranged so that the side branches will be no room for growth.
2. If given the opportunity to grow a branch to form a five or six pairs of leaves, it will be too long, pinch too late or it will break, or it will have to be trimmed.
How to form the crown pruning
Other money tree that is planted by me 2 years ago, I formed the trimming. The principle of operation is the same as in the topping.
That is, I counted four pairs of leaves on the new shoots, and all that has grown up over them, and cut off. After a while, next to cut new shoots appear.
note! Pruning should be carried out only on the expanded money tree that has many side branches!
To achieve the desired result at a time will not work. A desired shape can be achieved gradually.
