Is that a Green Island Ficus?

Oh. you know me, I just had to take a peak!

Lovely Xuan!

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.

Mike:-)

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.
