Yikes, not me. Love it the way it is. I was just thinking what a nice clump/group it's going to make. Can't wait to see it in that much shallower oval pot!

Have to admit that I do prefer the low branches on the right in a more horizontal position.

Russell,

You're most likely right since I am (my personal taste is) biased that way. Embarassed

I understand what you mean Dario. From my end I see a bunch of rather uninteresting individual trees, and if they were sitting on my bench I'd bundle them together to make a fused group like this. I love to see this particular ficus as a natural looking group or single banyan style bonsai, and this one seems well on its way.

Neriifolia, etc.

The correct name is Ficus salicaria. It is interesting as a clump banyan style, but I would thin it out a little so the birds can fly through.

Very nice clump style.
In a shallow pot and with a little bit of secondary branching this should be a knockout.

Yes...I've been trying to figure out why I prefer the first photo to the third photo, and I think this is the main reason. Looks like some other trunks have also been removed or shortened? Hard to tell.

Anyway, I agree that this is going to be a really nice clump when the branching is further developed. Looking forward to seeing that happen!

Topics now merged so we can see the tree in both its old and new pots.

I liked the old pot but personally I think you made the right choice in putting it in the shallow oval.

Looking forward to seeing it develop.
