Ficus carica

Post  bonsaisr on Wed May 30, 2012 4:24 pm

The reason I asked about the smell, in some countries, especially the US, there is a nitrogen-fixing one-celled organism that lives inside the leaves. In exchange for a home, I guess it helps feed the tree. This is what causes the smell. It has also been reported from Florida. On the other hand, someone who visited Israel swore he never found it there. It is only found in F. carica, no other figs.

Hi Iris,

Your input about smell attached my interest as none of these trees in Turkey smells like that. I also heard this issue for the first time. Smile
I also have 2 fig. carica trees, & they also dont smell like that Smile
Could you please give some information about that one-celled organism? it really draws my interest Smile

Thanks

Ficus carica

As I said, the fig's nitrogen fixing bacteria only occur in certain locations. I couldn't find any more information. It used to be called a blue-green alga, & now it is a monera. That's all I know.

As far as I know, I have never heard of such a "stinky" ficus carica in Greece. I repeat: in my knowledge up to now...
Interesting! This is the first time I hear about this.

Ficus carica

Post  bonsaisr on Thu May 31, 2012 3:33 pm

Interesting. This phenomenon is called mutualism. It is not symbiosis, because the fig tree lives happily without it. Apparently, this particular organism originally lived only in North America, and when people brought over fig trees, they found each other.
This happens frequently with alien weeds. With their new-found mycorrhiza or nodule bacterium, they become more invasive. Ficus carica is an invasive weed in the South.

Really interesting...
However, as we are sure that this is not the case for Cram's tree, and trees in Turkiye and also Greece (as confirmed by Alexandra), it should be specific to North America!?

Hello cram!
I come back to this thread for asking some questions.
During this last year I have noticed that my cuttings do not respond very well regarding back budding.
All the cut branches have sprouted new shoots from the bud at the very end of the branch. No new shoots back on the branch!

Which is your experience?
Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

@my nellie
the technic i use is to let the terminals sprout of the branche be openned
as soon as you start too see some fresh green new stem...you cut only the terminal sprout in a first time
in the next 15 days you will get back budding ...at this time you decide the ones you want to keep


on ficus it works very well Wink


this tree is still in winter protection...i will post some news as soon the work of this spring is done

thx !
up....still growing...this year i ve just worked the branches and let nature makes a nice roots system on the rock
nature answer with his strength is often better than the totally controlled non stop human work
i realize how much bonsai is a real communication school with the trees...(yeah i know...some people get this quicker than i did ^^)
you ask and do ...and the vegetal give the answer and do also, but you have to let the time to do it properly
i was too much on my trees before ...and they were a lot less healthy
now i let the time to the plants...i can see the powerfull answer

well...it s just a thought

I keep coming to look at it. It is so inspirational. I love all the twists you created and the general arrangement of the branches and tree. Well done.
