This trunk started with about 9 2yr old cuttings fused in the ground I believe, most of these bigger trunks that I made were left in ground for about 5 to 7 yrs growing very tall with many sacrifices used to get width and fast track to this stage, quite a few grounds layers were added to all of them to get more flare and to cover wounds.

Alot of root work was done before going into the poly containers and more to come when going into Bonsai pots....A journey here but results are coming :)







Ground layers added

Very nice Anthony, I like the direction you are heading with the styling . It's going to look like a fig.
Cheers Rod

cheers Jerry and Rod, hi Rod yes attempting to grow this next batch of trunks like the local figs in my area, in my observations of them some have a central leader with many radiating out like my trunk and some without the central trunk but still radiating the same, shall be a good challenge :) ...thanks guys

cheers Anthony

Pete if it is mine I will strip it down to bare stump. You will not get an even distribution in growth doing what you do. That is just me. Good luck.
Yours sincerely.
Leong.

Hi Peter

What does the other side look like?

I have to agree with Leong simply because of what he is meaning is that at the moment you have thick and thin branching and also you have the thickest at the top, meaning it is out of scale.

By doing what he is suggesting will give you more options as you will have a lot more branches pop out to select from, taking it to the next level.

I did what you are doing for a lot of years till the penny dropped.

Hi Anthony

If it was mine I would do exactly what Leong has suggested Peter do.

I would cut off all the lower branches and just go with the thick leader and build a tree from it using some new branches, it would take it to the next level and make a more powerful tree showing off the kick arse trunk you have.

Can you do a couple of drawings without the lower branches and a tree form on the leader, I'm not suggesting making it any higher.

we can have some designing fun????

No No No not this time JC :)

I have just done a rough count on the style you suggest, hmm 22 figs i have big and small in that style, finished? and in construction...sorry mate i do not need another fig like that unless you want to give me one :)....these 3 figs I just recently put up are over 11 and 12 inches wide without lifting them out of the flooded medium they are in, they are primed for this type of styling i m attempting, over 95% of figs in my valley and adjoining valleys grow like this......I need a new challenge and I think we need to think outside the box more....variety is spice and I do like those flavours...sorry buddy

Rod s comment nailed it.



took this in the adjoining valley.

cheers Anthony
