Dorothy, this was an intesrestig post. I have also has issues with thickening the apex on what I suspect is a kinmen tiger bark ficus. Granted, I live in the northeast so they don't grow as quickly.

Can you please tell me you schedule for increasing ramification of your ficus in general? My tigerbark is really struggling to ramify.
Hi, can you post a picture please?

Thanks,
Dorothy

Dorothy,

I'm happy to see the ficus again. It's beautiful, nature and healthy.  The scar healed well.  

Your Bonsai techniques is more well in few years.

We are here now, tree is leafing out:



We are going here ( except the pot, which may stay oval) :



Comparison:



The leafs are already very tiny on this tree. Structure is extending and expanding now.

Very nice!
I noticed that in Asia...(malaysia) They would grow the branches very long and thick before cutting back? I think it will fatten your branches faster which this style is.

Hi Nelly! I understand this method of allowing branches to grow long before cutting them back is a usual method for thickening them. I do it myself and I can assure you that it works.

Alfredo

I'd say that oval is best if you don't mind

Beautiful work Dorothy
Wonderful tree. It is truly inspirational.

Makes me want to get out in the yard and re-vamp my Ficus. We have had a cool enough spring that it is just beginning to grow this year. I will winter it in a warm orchid growing area, so it will have time to mature from work I do this summer.

Thank you, Leo. Glad you like it. I defoliated the tree today and gave it a trim:
