Are Monrovia's podocarpus gracilior grown from seedling or cutting? To your knowledge is there any difference in growing habit between the two? Thank you.

Monrovia's podocarpus gracilior are seed grown. The method of propagation determines the growth habit of this plant. If grown from seed, plants are upright when young and generally stay that way. Given support in their youth, they will grow into a strong, single trunked tree. If grown from cuttings, plants are very limber and tend to grow into willowy shapes, making them good candidates for espaliers, hanging pots, or trained as a vine along fences. Hope this answers your question!
