He'll all new to the group but I picked this 30 year old tiger bark ficus up for $70 bucks off a local guy that got hurt at work and desperately needed money that being said the tree was root bound to holy hell so I gave it a light prune and repotted it. I want to chop megee the top this coming spring but then again I'm not to sure I just don't like how the top is so straight. I wired a couple branches to make it look appealing to my eye but I would love to hear what you guys think.. FB_IMG_1502992795253.jpg

Cool base indeed - add your basic location in your profile like mine is and I am certain many will be able to comment or give advise - myself I could and would do some serious chops in mid Summer even though I am up North ;)

When you repot next time, get it into free draining soil. The roots will rot in the potting mix you've put it in. Let it grow wild and do no pruning during the colder months, it'll need that energy.

I use a soil for tropicals I got from New England bosai nursery I just put the soil up to the airial roots that didn't make it to the soil yet :)
