My first Tiger bark. I picked it up at our last club auction of the year. They said it was about 25 years old. It looks a bit big for the pot. I think I will repot. Any suggestions for improvement greatly appreciated. Not bad for $45 I thought.

Ponder
----------

[1 ] Decorative roots and trunk with green hat

or [2] An attempt at a normal tree shape with branching ?

These ficus types can be very taxing.

As usual suggested ------- cutting rooted --------- to experiment on, leaving mother
to become healthy.
Lots of sun.

How low temperature ?
Good Day

Update: I believe this tree is much healthier now and has added some girth to the trunk and the root base. The aerial roots have thickened nicely as well. Going for the broom style.
