Should I be reducing these down to like one or two shoots? I don’t have any experience with these weirdos.
I’d say let it harden off then reduce. If it’s still soft tissue you risk breaking the whole thing off.
I agree with Mr. Wheat. Let it get back energy.
I did a odd eucalyptus many years ago. Could never get it to behave. Grew like crazy, wouldnt reduce internode legnth. Should be a way…
This was way before Mirai. Ask the Aussie members…
Good advice especially since it looks like there was a big trunk chop recently.
I have really wanted to experiment with eucalyptus; super excited to see you develop this!
I would let this grow this season with one exception. If any one shoot begins getting too strong and internodes get too long you can cut the terminal end of that growth to halt elongation. One of those shoots will become the extension of the trunk line and you’ll want to let that develop some girth so that you can have a natural transition of taper.
Any updates on this tree?
