Can fatsia japonica be cut off halfway on the trunk?



Welcome, Luise!
It sure can, but you might want to rig a temporary shade to keep the stem from sunburning. I would also give it a light feeding with something low phosphate. If you want to hedge your bets, leave two leaves at the top, feed it, and cut lower once side sprouts and/or basal shoots have developed.
