A twin-trunk Ficus I have had for some time. [Initial cost 7$ for 8 trunks about this size 22" high in a 1G pot, Drum pot 4$] The apex on both sides has been completely [Well ok, It is still in developement] regrown from a trunk chop to reduce the height. I do wish I had gone lower, I still will I think.
Just gave it a haircut today as it is coming back inside under the lights fulltime here fairly soon. I often think of chopping these down to about 3 or 4" or so to make a decent shohin. [I have another twin-trunk that is very similar. I feel being shorter would impart more realism, Especially wrt taper.]
Current height from soil is nearly 12" [30cm]
Before:My apologies for the glare.
I noticed a slight difference between the angles of these first two pics after I hosted them.
[Sorry but I am too lazy to go through the entire photo ordeal again..lol.]
The picture before it was pruned is the proper front angle, It shows off the curve of the smaller trunk better IMO.
A shot of the nebari [Which I unburied to photograph]: Amazing focus on the background there, can't say the same for the tree... Sorry about that.
Comment, Ideas, Perspectives....Anyone?
