office tree?

Post  Guest on Fri Sep 09, 2011 10:07 am

Hello IBC.

I got this question. How long a ficus microcarpa/Chinese banyan should stay indoor? the area is Airconditioned, inside an office building, got a very good source of light-by the skyscraper floor to ceiling high glass window. Will be watered regularly( I hope and as promised)

My wife's corporate office in a 24th floor building got renovated, and the work is done last week. She told me before that she will allow an extra space for a bonsai Sad Sad . Probably she saw it in one of a Japanese movie. Then I just said, yup honey sure! I thought it was just a casual conversation and not serious. but when I saw her office, a customized bonsai table was already in placed waiting for a poor tree.
The least I could do is to let her roam around the garden and select in one of my ficus collection-that's the best specie that can take indoor condition right?



regards,
jun Sad

No

This is the guilty tree, chosen from the line up... Sad
Just removed it out of direct sunlight to start acclimatization process.

Hi Jun. I feel for you mate. Especially with specimens of the like that you are dealing with. I've had to move a few of my less-established F. microcarpa indoors for the summer as it's so bloody hot here. The only light they have recieved is filtered through the mirrored windows. Health wise, they are doing great and are heavy in root now, but the leaves are very big and the new growth (plenty of that) is a bit leggy. I still water them daily and they are at a more of less constant 22c.

I know a lot of the Northerners keep their microcarpa 'dormant' over winter by watering them very little and keeping them coolish. This seems to retard all growth without appearing to damage the tree's health. Others on this forum would have the experience to elaborate though. Good luck.

When I was employed I rotated trees through the lobby. Tree in on Monday, home on Friday. Another tree the next Monday. I tried to have a six tree rotation.

Man Jun, I would hate to have you lose a tree like that due to poor office conditions. Your biggest issue, of course, is going to be humidity. And with an AC going, that will only make things worse. That trees a beauty, what if you chose a less beautiful tree Laughing

...That's the reason why it took you more than 6,000 miles from (UK to Thailand) in search for the ideal tree. wife Kai (send my regards to your pretty lady) is just a coincidence John?hehehe! Cool

...If that's an advice based on experience, I'll follow that as a golden rule Billy! Laughing

I thought your initial post is just a metaphor from a wise man. I shouldn't try to read between the lines next time. scratch

Hi IBC.

A week short for 1 year this tree survived in a fully airconditioned office room with just minor trimming and daily watering.
yesterday was the time to pull it out of the office so that I could wire it again.







As a replacement tree I let her have this one. I think no other specie could survive such situation for a year and give no sign of weakening..



My Boss seems to be happy with the replacement tree



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bye bye! for now my dear penjing...I'll pick you up in a month or two...or a year... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Very lucky wife to have such a source of wonderful looking bonsai.
the second tree is it in/on a stone slab/pot?
can you tell me a little more about it I am looking for something like that only a bit smaller and have been thinking of trying to make one myself.

Hahaha! Bolero ka daw sabi ng Mrs ko! Thanks! Good eye on trees maybe,,,hehehe, not on woman! We're on a relationship for 12 years before we get married at the age of 28, so you do the math on age...hehehe.

Wait for the new image of the tree....I change the front today and rework on the branches. I like it now much much better. You won't recognize it as the previous tree...

Nice!

Pre, hindi bola yan. If you know me, I don't hold back and just say what I see. Wink Ask around here, no one will say your wife looks like 40. I sure can't tell. I'll stick with my 20 estimate...maybe it will buy me a pass to your garden when I come home for vacation. Very Happy Wink lol!

Light is the main problem inside, you need a specific lamp with quartz glass and a lot off ambiant and constant humidity under he pot.
