banana shrub

I just got a small Michelia figo in a 3" pot, the plant is about 6 inches high. Should I pinch it out to make it bushy? What is the nest way to grow this plant? Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hi diamondm - when your M.Figo blooms, you will like the scent. I only wish the flower would stay on the plant longer. Anyways, if that was my plant I would pot up to next larger pot. Again, my climate is Southern California, where every thing seems to thrive.
