i have always thought of it as a ficus rianne. But I have doubts. The first four pictures are from today. The last two are from May 2019. I worked it pretty hard for the first 10 months or so. Today was the first time I’ve done anything since March this year.

I think this was a spot on intermediate move.

But efforts should continue to work it down even further.

Well....I guess you could end up that tall.... but I think it will be much more impressive about half this height.

I love the new pot for the legroom.

I would love to see those roots fused up into a more single mass.

Great start. So great, it would be quite humanly easy to lose sight of a bitching ass end. Don't lose sight of an end greater than imaginable.

I’ve got a wedding to go to in the middle of May. Im seriously considering this as a wedding gift. It’s unique and the groom is an artist and will appreciate it. I barely know the bride. It’s easy enough for clip and grow care. I hope it’s leafed out by then.
