Thanks Hank, some nice trees there.

I'm not really into tropicals myself (wrong climate outside and I don't have the indoor space) but it's always nice to see what other people are growing. Thanks for sharing.

Regards

Thanks for the kind words.  All three of the Ficus Burtt davyi were grown from cuttings - the oldest (top) was started about 7-8 years ago. In time most develop a very nice buttress and reasonable nebari.  In the winter I water less frequently than in the growing season.   Also I have found that these figs should be re-potted (about every 1-2 years) in the spring after some new growth appears.

Did you score the dwarf variety or the standard leaf version?

Hank,
The non-ficus looks like operculicarya decaryi. Is that correct? If so, does it go dormant for you, and do you let it go bone dry in dormancy?

I am not certain of the botanical name -  know it only by its common name.   The tree has foliage the year round and does not appear to go dormant.  I water throughout the  year but as with most of my tropicals with less frequency in the winter months.
