That is why, regardless of understanding that Ficus Ingens are robust bushes, once I separated them in February I used to be a bit involved concerning the survival of the mother or father tree which had been diminished to a naked stump. I ended my earlier submit posing the query :
“After it is cussed refusal to supply any low branches, will this lastly shock it into cooperating, or will it kill the tree?”
Fortunately it did the previous. The stump is alive and effectively, with numerous new branches all alongside the trunk:
Actually in a number of locations the expansion sample of this species led to a number of branches sprouting from one spot.
I needed to skinny these out or they’d have brought on ugly bulges on the trunk as they thickened.
After a fast tidy up, the tree appears to be like like this:
There are new buds sprouting close to the highest of the tree, so I ought to be capable of maintain it to its present peak – if I select to take action.
The bottom department remains to be there. Because the second photograph was taken from the alternative facet, it is hiding behind the trunk. I am not making any styling choices now, however as soon as I see how the tree develops I’ll take away that department.
A full development in addition to future updates for this tree might be discovered right here.
The brand new tree I propagated from the highest is doing effectively too.
It has a few new branches alongside the straight a part of the trunk and there are already a number of roots rising out of holes within the pond basket.
Fairly good for six weeks’ progress!
