Hello all.....my 2 big ficus

Post  efishn on Wed Feb 05, 2014 10:08 pm

Hi all,
I would like to show you two of my ficus collection, which I worked on them recently, i'll love to hear from you any
comments, suggestions or anything else about how they look like ....
basically I purchased them a year ago, pruned them hard (they was ~2m high) and in the last year I grow them from scratch.

thanks in advance

I like them both -- a lot. What will you do with the stub on the left side of the trunk on the first one? Do you want it to sprout?

Are they a F. benjamina type?

Thank you Jim,
the stub will remove of course. both r Microcarpa species.
actually in the last days I thought maybe to lower the trunk by 1/3 and to grow it again, it will cost me ~ a 1 year.
what do u think about that ?

many thanks
