Answer: The conflicting information you're finding is probably due to the fact that seed grown plants grow more quickly than cutting grown plants. P. gracilior grown from seed has a slightly different growth habit - it's more apt to grow quickly, need some support to grow upright, and produce stiff, closely spaced branches along the trunk. Cutting grown P. gracilior have closely set leaves but very limber branches which are not as closely set. Cutting grown plants are reluctant to produce stong vertical growth. These have a more willowy growth habit and are especially suitable to espalier. With staking and training they will eventually assume an upright position and will make a nice hedging screen. Monrovia Podocarpus gracilior is grown from seed. Hope this information clarifies things for you!
