This is a re-post from another forum. Smile

I bought this buttonwood around April, 2012


After 4 months, I decided to carve it.


2 years later.

Quite a transformation; nice job. Your climate is probably suited to these.

Thanks Jim. They love our summers but not winter. I have to put this (and 20 other tropical trees) inside my garage w/ artificial lighting for 4-5 months a year. Not fun. Sad

I have several buttonwoods in my unfinished room in the basement under artificial lights during the winter. I use full spectrum bulbs and a heating pad under them. They grow all winter. I defoliated 2 of them after bringing them in they are budding out all over and growing nicely now. I have 2 6' foot tables with trees on a heating pad and they grow all winter, except the crazy narrow leaf ficus. It drops it leaves until spring. You might try a seedling heating mat and see how a tree responds in the garage?

That is one of the best button woods that I have seen Dario, most that I have seen a thin and spindly, yours is powerful. Great job on the carving. I wish that I could find one around here.
