Help me decide how to prune this plant!
Hi guys, my adenium has just finished flowering, so as far as I know, now is the perfect time to prune it back.
Here's how it looks:
I'm thinking of pruning it like this:
Cuts 1 & 2 are for the main trunk, which currently branches in a Y.
Cut 3 and 4 are similar length branches coming out of the caudex, although 4 is obscured in this picture.
The problem is that I'm not sure what to do with the branches I've circled in white. Should I leave them alone? Should I pinch the growing tips? I have no idea.
Feel free to chip in with advice!
I'll take more photos once I get home, this was the only one I had on hand.
