Lennard, am I seeing it well or not? It looks to me the roots are not stuck to the stone...or it is an illusion.
As far as I know the roots are supposed to lie flat against the stone but I can be wrong??? Very Happy

Roots against stone.

Patience Neli!

When I remove the rest of the container some roots will have to be rearranged, some will have to be forced to the rock by using Styrofoam and cable ties again and some will have to be forced into crevices.

Some of the thicker straight roots will also be removed - the winding ones is what I need.

The work on the roots will only be done next summer and the tree will be chopped back in January 2015.

He he he! I thought they are supposed to be glued in the first attempt...and that is what I tried to achive and I think I managed...a bit. Not sure if I remove the ties it will not lift like yours Shocked

Long time not doing anything.

I have not worked on the tree for over a year now.

Lots of development in the roots but not much to the top. The cuttings have all fused now into one trunk. The variety I am using is quite amazing when it comes to fusing and root over rock.

I was planted in a home made Rockset pot but the pot could not handle the weight of the rock and the roots of the Ficus - so it is back into a plastic basin again.

I need to do some branch selection and rerouting some roots soon.




Any comments and advice welcome.
