Looks good widthwise - perhaps you can let the crown fill in a bit so its not so pointy.

Branching looks well done.

ogie,
a rounder top would give the tree a more matured look. lessen the triangular look.

Hi,

thanks a lot for the larger picture, this really shows the great ramification of your tree! I love this style of ficus with very wide branches, like those shown here: http://sidiao.myweb.hinet.net/2008_e.htm

I agree with what others have said about the apex, maybe the central part could also be grown out a little more so that the apex is more integrated.

Best regards,
Stefan

Ogie,

Nice tree. The ramification is well done. Congratulations.

About the top portion. Givent the fact that this tree has quick taper, For now, the top seems to be a little out of proportion. In order to solve this, you might opt for one (1) of the following:

1. Air layer the top portion to make a small tree. Once the apex is cut, the distance between the base and the top portion is shortened and the "pointy top" will not be evident.

2. If you are satisfied with the current height, you might want to choose to fatter the central part of the tree. In order to achieve this and not ruin the rest of the composition, peel off the bark of the area you want to fatten up and treat it as an air layer. Once roots develop, grow them out and place them in individual pots. By nourishing the central portion of the tree directly, it will swell and fatten. After it has grown to the desired girth, cut the air roots off.

Again, congratulations on such a beautiful tree.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

Ogie,

apologies not trying to hijack your feature, but I was struck by how similar your tree was to my friend's tree. Guan's is a gmelina and is about 15 inches tall. A long time ago this was my tree, but we exchanged specimens and he continues to refine it.

I have sent the image of the tree and the drawing. Don't know if this will help, but trying.
