How do i get my schefflera Umbrella Plant to have twisted trunks. Do they have to be young to be trained like this or is there a way i can do it at its current mature state? Any sort of advice would be much appreciated.
These do not naturally grow twisted. To get a twisted you can manipulate soft branches around say bamboo sticks and secure them with rafia, Since even green branches of this plant will easily break with extreme twisting, my assumption is that the green branches are slowly twisted as they grow out.
