agreed. this came out of a 5 gallon nursery container. gonna let it grow probably for at least a year under my lights before considering chopping it back again and continuing to develop the core branch structure/taper

excited about this lil dude's humble beginnings tho

Congrats! I've pondered over the years of adding one. I am told they are rather easy to take care of. Actually bid on a cascade dwarf over on 99Cent auction this week. But when outbid by the original first bidder. I decided, to let it go and go after the ficus I ended up winning, I don't like watching two auctions ending at the same time. So...someone was happy they won it. Wishing you luck on your journey!

I am considering taking last low left branch into a semi cascade style.
