Ficus concina (neglected but now noticed)

Post  rexman on Mon Jan 27, 2014 9:49 am

Hello, it has been a long time since I posted here. Hope to contribute more  Very Happy 

Tree is healthy so far. I think some of the roots "escaped" to the ground. Will this be a concern?

Maybe you can pitch in for a potential future design of this neglected tree. I just defoliated to show the branches.

About 90cm tall near the tips of the "crown".











 
Thanks!

You have a nice looking tree. my opion i would use pic #2 as the front. trim the long shoots back so the new leaves will be close in.. the root over the side of the pot i would remove.. show what you do please.. take care john

this is what I did so far...removed the overwhelming root and trimmed the branches. wood-works later...

it's too tall isn't it?

I think the top reduction was good. I would have left that root, but cut it around the soil. That side of the rock looks bare now.

yeah, I think the cut made one side bare, but that's hindsight. I couldn't have imagined how it will be before I did it. Anyways, I just gotta make this work. I'll update after a short time...2 years maybe?  Wink
