So my wife has had this ficus forever. I mean since we were married. 20 years. She never repotted it. Ever. Or fed it. I try to stay away from telling her things about her plants but this year I bought my own ficus and was applying some bio gold to it and it is doing great and she asks what I’m doing. So I being the nice husband that I am explain a few things about ficus and how a pot needs food more than the soil you dump in from time to time for the plant to thrive. She asks and I give her a bunch of bio gold and she presses them in the soil. Fast foward a couple months and her plant is looking better than ever. She asks me to repot it and for my area this is ficus repot season so I obliged and this is what I found. A sack of potato roots. She has admired my bonsai garden (a meager six plants) and asked if she could put it in a smaller pot. I said I don’t know how to deal with these roots…I will ask on the forum so here I am! Thanks for any help. I put it right back in the same pot by the way an hour ago, pruned maybe 20 per cent of the top, and a little off the bottom…about the same.
