Ficus lyrata pruning and notching
i posted somewhere my question about making notching on Ficus lyrata for encouraging new branches, because when i cut of the top of the tree it produced only one new branch. I wanted more, i got reply on this thread:
Cannot reply there because it's full.
so here is story of my lurata trees with pictures.
I got two plants in one pot from Lowes. After two years, i decided to separate them and do some pruning. Each tree got a new pot with good soil and rocks on the bottom for good drainage. But the pruning didn't stimulate many new branches. On one tree i removed almost all the leaves because i thought it would stimulate even more new branches. Again, it didn't work either. Then i found the thread above and i made notches above each leaf and since i didn't have many leaves left i made notches where i feel is ok to do. :) maybe i killed all natural flow of the plants' juices.
So far it doesn't work. It's about 2 weeks now how i made those notches. I have a feeling something is not right.
I am fertilising the plant.
I am submitting pictures of the notches i made.
Maybe nothing will help on this stage?
