I have a Magnolia figo which I trained as a standard. It is 3.5' tall with a 2.5' spread with ten S-shaped laterals above a 2' clear stem. It was grown from a cutting and topped at its current height. I'm considering pruning it to control its size as it is an indoor container plant. However I'm somewhat ambivalent to do so as the form of the tree is rather pleasing and I've read in these forums that magnolias generally do not need or like to be pruned. Doing nothing seems reasonable at this time since I suspect some of the buds on the laterals will turn out to be side branches come spring time. Your thoughts?
