Thanks. This was my first year at this house so I will have to make a few changes for next winter. I will do emergency repots in winter but no root work. In my previous location I had great sunlight and my lighting was really supplemental. I bit different here. I think my lighting is ok. May have overwatered a bit because I did get some root rot on a couple of them. Will make corrections and move forward.Clean looking setup and nice trees to go with!!
Sounds like a few more degrees will be beneficial for you. I run a 600w hps that I’ve had for years and it puts out a quit a bit of heat compared to the LEDs.
My setup allows for a lot of growth during the winter with high humidity and heat. I just experimented this winter with some of my ficus. Repotting (easy on roots), hard pruning of silhouette/branch selection and cuttings were taken this winter. 100% success.
Not with cuttings obviously. Tiger bark cuttings around 30% success rate, willow leaf cuttings around 90% success, and this other bigger leaf variety’s around 90% also.
Gotta love ficus!
I dont recommend repots during the winter, although my setup does allow me nice winter growth rates.
