Is my Ficus Fusion Mission Dying?

The tree because it seems to be at this time (entrance view)

Every part was going so properly with the Fusion Mission which I have been growing from a bunch of Ficus Natalensis cuttings over the past 4 and a half years.

I used to be lastly proud of the best way the trunk was fusing and had began some styling work.

Within the interval as much as January 2020 I took it to a few conferences on the lookout for recommendation.

January 2020 – earlier than pruning

A number of folks felt that the primary department (the thick one, above the reducing I’ve planted to attempt to widen the trunk) ought to be eliminated, however I did not like that concept and selected to shorten it as an alternative. I additionally felt the tree was getting relatively prime heavy, so I minimize it again to a brand new chief.

January 2020 – after pruning

For some time every part appeared nice however the first indicators of bother appeared someday in March, shortly earlier than lockdown. I’ve a photograph displaying critical die-back which was taken on 27 March. That was the day I made a decision to take away the useless leaves, however depart the branches intact in case a few of them survived.

On the time I believed {that a} badly executed minimize had killed the highest and I wasn’t too involved about it because the tree was taller than I needed it to be anyway. I used to be unaware of any additional issues after that.

A few weeks in the past, when the primary indicators of winter appeared, I moved the tree into my greenhouse.

Then this morning, I observed an entire new part of dying leaves.

Greatest case situation right here is that I will have a a lot shorter tree than I would deliberate. To be sincere I would be fairly proud of that.

However proper now I am terrified that that is just the start of the issue and that the tree is dying. And proper now, with the Covid-19 pandemic in full swing, I am unable to take the tree wherever to ask for recommendation.

If anybody studying this may provide me some help, it will likely be most welcome. I’ve put plenty of effort into creating this tree and I would hate to lose it.
