ficus virens advice please

Post  amanluthra688 on Sat Feb 15, 2014 5:55 am



This ficus was dug out demolishing municiple building
It had huge roots in rain water pipe and was a big tree scattered on the old roof.
I noticed and obtained it four years ago.
I cut the roots and the trimmed it from top
And the two side branches.
I let it grow for these years in the pot.
So the question is should i remove the left and
Right branch . As i feel these two branches are of
Same ratio compared to the main trunk.
And grow new branches.
The left branch is a little thin compared to right one
But the right one is tough.

Or let it be and go for a cut and grow method

Do please advice for some different shape
Thanks
Aman

As it stands now, it may be a bit too balanced and symmetrical. I'd suggest shortening the left-hand branch to UNbalance it a bit and see how you might want to go from there. I would NOT remove either branch.

Aman,

I don't know how dense this tree can get of leaf, but I believe as the trunk increases in size the two lower branches will become a bar branch.
So you may have to remove one eventually.

You may also wish to order your roots, say six or four, allowed to thicken as the tree grows.

Perhaps a much larger pot [ but not deeper ] for growing on and health.
Laters.

Thanks kaimraj
I was thinking of air lyring both the branches
And then both the branches
Be placed to there respected places vertically and let it be grafted with the main trunk and creat a banyan type.
Would that be okay
As the tree on the wild grows like banyan shape
Hope that may do the job
Thanks
Aman

Aman,

your basic shape is just fine, but you need to develop a healthy crown [ lots of leaves.]
If you are having problems with healthy growth, see the ficus work by Yvonne G. and, or talk to her.
Best of growing.
Later.

Thanks kaimraj
It begining to warm and my mango tree has also started to sprout. The ficus will shed its leaves in mid march and the new leaves will sprout.
The plant will be filled with new leaves.
Thanks
