Hi everybody

I have a little update on my Ficus Natasja

The trees did really benefit from being in a humid tent all winter, and no mould appeared.
All summer has the trees again been in humid tent....and this is how they look now, after one year.

I am not showing one of the trees, as I am working on, redusing the hight, it will take a coupple of years, before it is worth looking at.



This tree is shooting a lot from the underside of the lowest branches now...I will let them grow very strong, and keep the top small.



This tree is also shooting from the innerpart of the lowest branches ( not the trunk), and thats good. This small kifu has just been accepted for the EBA in Ratingen.....So, I feel rewarded for my work Very Happy

Kind regards Yvonne

Did you say these have always been in bonsai pots? They gained that much trunk girth in bonsai pots?!

Hi Yvonne!

I missed the updated pictures of your ficus. It is really amazing how you developed these trees from seedlings from a supermarket.

...but what really impress me is keeping the trees alive in your climate for a very long time and at a zero casualties and this means you still managed to keep your first 3 trees alive and in an impressive form.

I am very desperate to own a single Pine- Mugo, scots, any pine from the colder areas will make me a very happy man.

regards,
jun Smile

Congratulations on your abilities, dear Yvonne! Really amazing!
Do you think it's worth for me (and climate conditions in Greece) to try with a ficus neriifolia? I keep on postponing this since some time now... Smile
And a question, too : Do all kinds of ficus sprout aerial roots or only some of them?

Hi Jun

To hear theese words about my Ficus from you. Makes me honoured and humble...Many thanks.

I dont think, I am allowed to send a pine to your country, your country is very strict, as far as I know.
Let me know, what you can find out.....

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Hank Milller.

Many thanks Smile .

Dear My Nellie.

I am sure it is worth the while to try ficus in your country...you have the heath and a lot of light, If the air is too dry, you can keep the trees in a humidhouse, in the shade/part shade. Ficus tolerates low light.

I dont know about neriefolia, and I dont know, if all ficus make arealroots....please ask in a new topic...I would also like to know.

Kind regards Yvonne

Hi Friends

Some of you, who read this tread some times ago, may wonder if ficus in Denmark still works.....and some new readers may find it interesting too

Today I decided it was time to take the trees to the outdoor humid hothouse, after they had been in the indoor humid hothouse for several months...without having any windflow at all.

I think you should see how healthy they look... maybe some people in the northern Europe would like to try this at home too.



This tree will need to be vired a little




This tree was cut back on the lower left side one month ago. I t is shooting nicely back. The stone is now hidden inside the tree.

I brought this tree to EBA/ESA in Ratingen, Germany last september.....after the show did I see "they" had chanced my infomation about the orign from " seedling" to "import" ...I can not describe how this felt....I had worked on this tree for many years, just to read this, too late to do anything about it, after I came home.....I can assure all, this is not going to happen for me ever again.




I have just repottet this tree, as it needed a new position....
Last october when I wanted to bring in the tree for the winter, had it grown too big for the window....so I took the big scissor and cut it hard back..it is now a kind of square Smile a long strong root have shot out of the buttom of the pot 3 times during the winter, and the one side is now stronger than the other.

The tree will now need some restyling, I will look forward to do.
Hope to bring some updatephotos of all, hopefully improoved trees, later this summer.

Kind regards Yvonne

Yvonne,
Your trees are looking great. I hope that you can stimulate others to grow some tropical trees in the Northern countries.
Most excellent work.

Hi Jerry

Ficus is not common in the northern europe, and I dont think they ever will be....But it could be funny, if there was one more out there Smile

I think Yvonne is the only one in Denmark, with such good quality Ficus, I have seen the Ficus windowsill for real and as you can see it works really well.
Yvonne shows us that with dedication and hard work you can come a long way, not only with her figs.

Kind regards

Yes, of course! Peter, you are right but some people just close their eyes and will not admit the obvious... as we can read in the above Yvonne's post

This is a shame, dear Yvonne! I can imagine how you felt and feel about it. Nonetheless, such kind of "ratings" are absolutely worth of nothing.

Some update again Smile

During the year, I learned my trees are bannyonstyled, all 3 of them.....funny to learn that after all theese years Smile

We had a cold rainy month after I took my trees to the hot/damphouse in the garden....it did not do the trees any good, but they are ok.


This one had a good summer....It stands 25 cm. tall now, and will soon need a restyling.

As you can see, am I using vire and tape to controll the new ariealroots...keep them straight and hold them in possition....I am hoping for two more roots in the right side...all new on the other side is being removed.I am planning to remove a few old on this side too.




This tree had grown too big for my window...it is cut back, and is now only 27 cm tall now....the crown is being worked on as it grows.....branches growing into the crown is removed, the same for crossing branches, and two comming from the same spot too.
I am looking for a smaller pot.

Early this summer was it quit clear, the third tree was becomming weak i the top, due to too many ariealroots from the lower branches.....they have now been thinned out, and the rest of the tree has been cut back, for renew, and smaller sice.

Kind regards Yvonne
