:woohoo: :woohoo: Out of all of the trees you have posted in the last couple of days, this is the one that rings my bell. I love every thing about this tree it is one of the nicest figs I have seen in Australia. What catches my eye is it`s natural look, can you give us a little history on how it was created thanks Leong. Thanks for shareing it ,I don`t think I have seen this guy before.
Cheers Rod..

This one was an ugly duckling. Is one of the three figs I bought for my three kids. The first owner was Vita Koreshoff. When I bought this tree there was a tag 1962. I bought it in 1978 for $50, when my first child was born. Was a lot of money then but typical me I bought it anyway. Unfortunately because it was not going any where as far as look is concerned it was sitting in the dead corner and let to grow wild until 2002. In 8 years from cutting it down to bare branches/stumps to what it is today, I don't think I got anything to complain about. Because it was an ugly duckling sitting in the dead corner no photos was ever taken. My dead corner is always full of surprises. This what it looks like in 2006. When the first pic was taken for the book.

Yeah this one is an absolute stunner. This is the tree i told you about Rod and funnily enough i mentioned it was probably the best Banyan styled fig in Australia. It's the real deal this one mate.

I reckon this is Ficus obliqua rather than Ficus rubiginosa- have you got a close up of the leaves?

As Rod said right off the bat, this tree is an absolute stunner... Incredible...

Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money.

Leong,
very nice work. A creation showing the multiple apex typical of deciduous trees.
Congratulations.
Jerry

G'day Leong. Wow this is a great looking fig. How big is it? and what's the history behind potting it? Have you always had it growing in this pot and just used regular potting methods?

Cheers
Dan
