Hi, it's me again!!
I went to my local nursery to ask some questions about my Hawaiian Umbrella tree....it should be pictured above! The girl told me not to fertilize as alot of growth should not be encouraged. She also showed me how to prune back some long branches that are sticking way out. I also asked about a white powdery substance that seems to be on some of the leaves, and she told me that it was due to the tree being too moist. She told me to stop using the humidity tray with the stones and just let it sit on a dry tray. So I did that. Can I leave the stones on the humidity tray if they are dry? It looks so much nicer!! Is she correct about the white powdery substance on some of the leaves and is she right about the fertizlizer?
By the way...I want to buy a little Chinese figurine but can't find any...does anyone have any suggestions as to where to find one? Thanks again...you all are defintely my lifeline to success with my little tree!!
