I have a fastia japonica in a container, over the winter it lost all of the lower leaves. Wondering if I cut off the stems leaving it leafless will new shoots/ leaves grow? Is this the best way to fix my fatsia?I did submit a question regarding this issue about 3-4 days ago, but haven’t seen an answer yet, so sorry if this is a repeat question. So glad I found your site, lots of great information! Thank you for your help, Maggie

Here it is again…

I’d be careful keeping it out on the patio until temps at night are above 50°.  I’d start feeding it with a soluble plant food like Jack’s General Purpose Plant food every three weeks.  When you see signs of new growth you could snip off the very tip of it to force side growth lower dawn.
