Ficus retusa

Hi all friends.

This ficus jsek bought last year in the summer. Today we are at a friend brought out the trees from the greenhouse outside. The ficus was defoliation, and the first new styling.

Very nice job of letting tree grow out (health) and cutting back/wire styling branches. Nice material. The trunk looks natural(appearance of age) as opposed to an assembled trunk of multiple grafted trunks. One thought. What about shortening apex by having only a couple of apex branches and a quick taper. If you go back and look before defoliation the length of top of trunk appears separated(like a pom-pom) Just my opinion. Dustin Mann

i like the job Pavel. In Brazil, i have a few ones. So, tell me how often do you defoliate your ficus? doing it will 2 or 3 times in a year, is good?
Defoliate that often will make the bonsai weak?
Thanks

hi pavel
that trunk is AMAZING! To me it looks like the middle trunk is spilling over the lowest trunk, then the main trunk has over grown the 2 trunks. Exclamation it looks AMAZING thumbs up
