I found a sweet, yet odd shaped, willow leafed ficus at my good friend Don’s house.
Who, I might add, is getting quite a large collection.
Short and stout. It looks to me that it was a root cutting that’s grown out.
Bag it and tag it!
He wouldn’t let me buy it but instead insisted on trading. I gave him a good podocarpus and promised to help him pot it up.
Nice trunk and a good leader. And whats important is that there are choices.
This is the back, probably.
Side. You can see how flat it is. Not much for back branches. But, if I know anything, I know I will get beaucoup budding from this here ficus salicaria.
Good roots to work with. Let’s say we clean them up a bit.
Please attend whilst I pluck, like errant follicles, the weeds growing here.
