Fukien Tea update

This is what the Fukien tea tree looked like upon the initial purchase.

Now it after sitting outside the tree has filled out and started growing some shoots.

I haven’t bothered to wire the shoots because I’m just going to cut them back to a couple sets of leaves. Hopefully I can get some branch growth near the base. I’d like to reduce this one, but I’m afraid to cut it back very hard.

  1. Don’t be afraid to cut it back hard. Healthy Fukien teas take well to hard pruning. Check out my post I did on one of my three Fukien tea bonsai. I completely chopped off more than half the top of one and as of now it is throwing new shoots like crazy! :)
