Ficus work day

Post  Guest on Mon May 16, 2011 10:52 am

Hi IBC.

today I worked on some of my ficus trees.
I would like to share the trees with you.


Ficus 1. Ficus planted on rock (Ficus microcarpa)...I'm developing this tree for future penjing project



Ficus 2. Another (Ficus microcarpa)...in the branch refinement stage...my plan for this tree...well...make it a bonsai tree. hehehe.






Ficus 3. Rock clasping (Ficus Philippinensis)...this tree was posted here too. used to be tall rock without hole. Just removed the wire and guy wire today





Ficus 4. Root over rock (Ficus Phil) ...This tree was one of my earliest posted work here in IBC (to rock or not to rock). it used to be planted in a tall pot. the roots are holding well now.




regards,
jun

Thanks Dre.
yes its getting really hot and humid lately, that's why I defoliated my ficus trees today, they will cope well during this season.
p.s. sorry, just got back from out of town work yesterday. we'll reschedule your visit...

Jun,
I really like Ficus 3. Rock clasping.
The trunk rises so naturally from the roots and rock, and the clasping radial roots are quite unique looking.

Hi Jun,
I like you trees. I think my favorite is the tall cascading Ficus. How do you distinguish between Penjing and other bonsai? I am curious. For instance, you stated on the first tree "for a Penjing project"; what do you have in mind? Thanks!

Excellent trees Jun. Well with you its always exceptional trees.... Wink

My favourite was the last tree, the tall root over rock. I had seen similar compositions before but not with a ficus. Too good.

Hi Jun
Nice ficus trees. When you defoliate the ficus do you leave the petiole or not?

And by the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Hi Jun! Great selection of trees! I especially like Ficus #3, the one clinging to rock, which makes a very nice composition. And Happy B-day too! Laughing Best regards! Bagpiper

Hi Todd.
I should say for a broader penjing project. more like a landscape composition.

Hi Cosmos.

sometimes I do, Sometimes I don't. Depending on the stage of the tree's development and health.
