I wasn't sure which forum to post this question in so hopefully this one is okay. I'm a newbie to all things gardening.
Ive read that a lot of people hate the Polka Dot Plant but I must admit, it's one of my faves! I took some cuttings of two different types of PDP and they all rooted nicely (Woop Woop!!). I know these plants tend to get tall and lanky and you're supposed to pinch back tips of young growth to keep it compact. One problem... Idk how to pinch tips to keep plants compact!!
I've pinched the tips of petunias but that's it. When it comes to young plants like these, how far down am I supposed to pinch off? And when is ideal to pinch them off (as soon as I see new growth? When they get to a certain height?)?
I posted a couple pictures of the cuttings. There are 3 cuttings in each 4 inch pot.
While I'm at it...
In your own opinions.... If I want a nice compact bushy plant how many of these cuttings should I pot together and what size pot to use?
Thanks in advance!!
