Too tall ficus

Post  Tom Simonyi on Thu Jul 16, 2015 12:54 pm



I have decided to work with this tree with its current dimensions intact (i.e. 43 inches in height from the soil line....nebari measures 7 inches across tapering to a 4 inch trunk).  I like the delicate feminine lines.  Probably a little bit tall but will see what develops.  This picture was taken after some clearing up of cross branching, etc.

Regards,
Tom

Actually it was my wife of 39 years who said so....I tend to listen to whatever she says after so many years together, plus her eye for bonsai is pretty good even though she is not an active enthusiast. I have a subsequent photo. of the tree after potting up....I will try to post during the next few days.

Thanks for your input.

Tom, setting aside size for a moment, this tree has a couple of things that are not so common in bonsai today it seems- the feminine curves already mentioned, and a sense of youthfulness. It's very uplifting and mesmerizing. Hats off to you.

for me it is nice, not tall at all Very Happy and it would be nicer when the main trunk on the left is bended a bit at the small branch after bending the tree would have a nice curve and the small branch should be wired toward viewer so that the whole foliage would look warmer Very Happy

Hi

I'd be interested to see what front you have chosen after potting. For me the front in this picture has just a little movement in the trunk line... Plus, I'm curious as to what that knob near the bottom looks like! I think it looks like a nice healthy tree and you're doing a fine job rearing it Smile
