My money tree is braided does it braid itself or do I have to braid it as it gets bigger?
(1) crazzymonky, after a successful first year with 5 braided plants, i decided early this spring to prune them. I planted the single- and double-leaf branches into soil and watered it with drops of Miracle-Gro like the rest. Wow. Each one has taken root and started to become a baby tree. I DID NOT HAVE THE HEART TO prune them like the lady in the Chinese plant store advised me to do in order to make the Trunks THICK: she said to CUT OFF the entire leafy part of the plant. The plant will then (a) sprout lower [and therefore more desireable] limbs; and (b) thicken the trunks. [I AM JUST PASSING ON ADVICE; I WILL NOT TRY IT TILL NEXT MARCH] (2) nero, i apologize for not KNOWING the true answer .. but at this point i think you are wrong that the plants braid themselves due tothe way they are planted. Maybe someone just sits there and braids them s-l-o-w-l-y as they g-r-o-w? (just kidding). I will ask further when i get into town.
Yup you're right. Sorry about that crazzymonky, I got some bad information from my research. Apparently, mhung is right in terms of braiding it slowly as it grows. This question was answered on this site:
Sorry again, hope that helps you out. =]
They braid themselves. The way they're planted causes the braiding.
