How did this happen to my Ficus???
I purchased this Ficus about 4 years ago when my wife and I were selling our first house. Since then Its been with me in my office looking great. I only noticed that the trunk had grown like this about a year ago during a re-pot since it had been in this pot ever since I aquired it.
The trunk was buried up past this very interesting knot/split/whatever its called. So when I re-potted it and found it was there I potted it much lower so the interesting portions could be shown off.
How does this happen, or should I say how does the trunk in a ficus get to be split like this?
