my tree is 6 ft. and it finished blooming. the problem is that the tree isn't lush with green leaves. the stems are about 10 inches before any foliage is seen. the foliage is at the end of the stem. how do i prune it and where do i cut the stems?

Pruning off a few inches from the tips of the stems will force new leaves to grow towards the center of the plant. Pruning the stem tips back should also encourage branching and lots more flowers. Enjoy!
