I especially like the look you have going for that last fig there lukeaaustin. Do you have the soil mounded up the trunk like that to encourage "aerial roots" closer to the ground to thicken the basal spread of the trunk?

Luke,

They look like some VERY long term fusion projects you have there. How long do you think they will take to fuse?

Raymond,

That's a pretty neat little fig, where do you see this guy going in the future? Got any sketches?

2 I have just worked a little on. The cascade was upright last week. The fusion/strangler is actually a 4yo seed grown single tree.

Id like to shorten the branchletts, but other than that, just keep working n the ramification. No major changes planned...

Hi All,
A few more figs to add to the collection.
Recently re-potted so a little rough plus growing out a few sides to get a wider foliage mass.
Also a few benjis :) They all came from a house plant a neighbour gave me.
My 1st fig. From them came all manner of shapes and sizes, also a little mix of tigers and a few others
I have a few more projects on the go ;) will save them for later
Cheers John

Hi WRCMAD the pot was made by Vic Harris from Erin Bonsai , about two years old . Lovely texture to it. Cheers John.

Boom 64 - I love the second last pic. I'm a big fan and I've been following this combination of tree through its topic for a while. Great work.
