New bonsai ficus few weeks ago

, I found myself walking away from Mammoth fundraising Golden State Bonsai Federation with three new stands and a large ficus. The ficus sported a fun bulbous trunk and a nice, full silhouette. So I did the things the natural people in bonsai so often. – I removed most of the foliage, inadvertently creating a kind of tropical tree Charlie Brown

Ficus after trimming – Ay

totally am – and regularly – accept criticism of my non bonsai ‘about the “beauty” of my collection friends. I believe that this is part of the admissions process. When I get new trees, I focus on what they healthy and health of the tree always starts with the roots. I knew that I would soon remove the land from the tree and therefore should remove a proportionate amount of foliage -. That is what led to big cuts

The transplant went smoothly. I started by eliminating the old land and cut the roots.

Then I went to work in some large roots that make no sense for the tree. A large root in the front of the tree was too big for cutters so I gnawed on it as best I could and then the wound with a chisel smoothed.

Removing a large root

I do not leave me many roots. healthy ficus can usually withstand quite severe root pruning, especially if the tree is well looked after transplantation.

still have to select a front for the tree, or vertex – it’s too early for that. I have yet to remove the upper third of the trunk to face a large, open wound, and I do not want to make that final cut until the tree is more vigorous sprouts – and lots of roots. I’ll start thinking more about the future tree style when you reach that point.
