for putting jars of water to put schefllera leaves in to propagate.
The plant we have often have 7-stem leaves, sometimes 6,8 and rarely 9.
I am gonna try to step down by propagating a 6-stem leaf see if it will produces lower number of stems variations.
And for stepping up I use a 9-stem leaf and see it will produce higher number of stems variations.

Tin, I like schefllera plants. They are very nice looking. Currently do not have one and have never tried to propagate from a cutting. My understanding from reading is that it is easy to get them to root in water or soil. I was surprised to read that one should always wear gloves when handling them as they are poisonous. I never had a problem with handling the plant when I had one. Of course, caution is warned if around pets or kids who might handle or "sample" them. I don't know if it is really true as I only read from one source about this. Good luck with your experiment!

I had never heard of this plant before. So I had to do a little quick research, just to get better guidance on what was being commented on here.
It appears to be a tree (not just a plant) from New Zealand.
I don't know how far they can reach, but they can and are usually created inside houses through pruning or the bonsai technique.

Thanks to Pat I learned that there is a certain danger in the handling of these plants because they are poisonous. Thx Pat!

On this site How to care for Schefflera Arboricola tips

Particularly, I tend to do something similar, with fruit-type plants, mainly avocado. I recently discovered that it would be easy to make pineapples as well and maybe I will try to plant some.

For those who are curious, below is an image of this plant.

didn't know they were toxic either, but never had problems from handling them.

Some years ago I also had a schefllera plant. I can believe what Krikor wrote, that it is more like a tree.
My plant grew very large and regularly I took shoots from it. I let them take root in sand not in water.
That way I was able to enjoy it for many years. At some point it got sick and died, why I don't know.
Pat, I didn't know it was poisonous but never had any problems with it, even without gloves.

Good luck with your breeding, Tim :thumbsup:

they grow roots in water but there's no nutrients so they don't grow much in water.
But I also order 1.5 KG of Miracle Grow water soluble plant food....so I am going to mix that into jars when I receive it.
