I'd like to show Al the following photos of my ficus (in a bonsai pot).
The tree before - Aug 2009:
Thanks for viewing.
Great job! Looking good, MAGM. Let me know if/when you're ready for the next step. ;-)
Many thanks, Al. Yes, I'm ready for the next step, please tell me what to do.
(BTW, I will be a real granny in January!)
Is that a Green Island Ficus?
Oh. you know me, I just had to take a peak!
Have you ever thought of growing plants with tiny roots in Conk Shells? I saw them on a lawn yesterday with small succulents in them. I loved the idea!
I love that pot you have your plant in too.
Hoping you have a splendid day.
OK - let's pick a single branch to be our apex (top) and eliminate some of those downward growing branches that don't contribute to a natural tree image.
Are you coming into a period of strong growth or do plants pretty much grow like crazy for you all year? ;-)
Can you take pictures from 4 sides so I can get some depth perspective & a better feel for where the branches are?
Have you repotted recently? That will make a big difference in growth rate if roots are presently tight.
How cool is this? ..... remote bonsai. ;-)
Congratulations on your new upcoming status as a grandmother, too! I know you're excited! TTYS.
It filled out so nice, that's beautiful!
Thanks for sharing,
