ficus natalensis

Post  Hank Miller on Mon Jan 10, 2011 2:42 am

I have begun to work on some of my figs. This smaller ficus natalensis will have to re-potted in the spring. One of the reasons I like tropical bonsai is that they can be displayed in our home (in western New York) throughout the year. The small walnut stand is one of the stands that I make. Enjoy Hank



One of my larger ficus natalensis on an oak stand which I have made. The tree needs another year or so to improve the refinement and to reduce the size of the leaves

Tim - Stands like this I make in different sizes, from very small to very large. With the present selection I can display most of my trees. Hank

Nice tree, but I think this stand is too small for this pot.

The natalinsis is probably grown from a cutting. Very few figs are grown from seeds.
I have a much larger one in my greenhouse but it is suffering from the cold still and has lost all leaves.

Thanks to everyone for the comments.

Most figs are indeed propagated from cuttings.
