Question: fatsia japonica
I have a fatsia Japonica plant in the open ground that developed on a single stem, which reached about one meter and eighty of
height has produced a flower that is now reclining and since it is at the apex of the single stem I don't know what to do.
Can you advise me?
Answer: fatsia japonica
generally the fatsie tend to produce little branched stems, therefore it is quite normal for your specimen to have a single stem; given that the large and heavy inflorescence is modifying the conformation of the whole plant, you could prune it, in order to lighten the stem, and allow it to develop erect; It is probable that your pruning leads to the development of branches, so you could prune your plant a little lower than the flower, avoiding however to remove all the leaves with the topping of the plant.
