can this plant be resized?
If yes, right period?
Can other plants be obtained with what you cut?
in general the schefflere cannot be pruned, unless they tend to empty themselves in the lower part of the shrub, or when they become really big; avoid pruning it vigorously, rather lighten the foliage by removing some branches. The octane branches can be used to prepare cuttings, dipping them in the root-hormone and burying them in a good fresh potting soil. The best time is the end of winter or the beginning of spring; the closer we get to spring, the better it will be for the success of the cuttings.
