Ficus Love

I am really thankful for these two. I moved to New York city (giving up outdoor space) and have come to appreciate the adaptability of these trees. I keep them on the fire escape when it's warm enough and then under a grow light the rest of the time. I am also learning how to style smaller (mame-shohin) trees with these guys. Styling needs to be exaggerated in these trees in order for it to "read" (space between branches). I think they might be a little "cookie cutter" right now Sleep and I would love styling advice.

Nice trees.
The Willow Leaf just needs to grow at this point.
The Green Island, microcarpa, can use a thinning out of the top to send energy to strengthen the lower right branch.
Just my opinion.
