i like the shape of this tree, Anthony! Not so sure about the oval pot though. I never thought I'd say this, but I prefer it in the rectangular pot! :o

No worries Mel they are actually two different trees, fixed my heading up, but you might be right time to let the maple pot one go for a rectangle one...cheers Mel

LOL...sorry Anthony, I thought it was a progression.

:)

I have a big ol fig that I'm working on, and after seeing yours in the unglazed rectangle, I reckon I'll definitely put mine into one as well.

Thanks Mel,

The beauty of this species is that it does not constantly fight (with) you to keep the leaf size down with a naturally much smaller leaf than PJF and its other attractive attributes with a glossy leaf and white trunk.

Very humble start to this guy, put a gentle bend in it at the get go and then a handy shoot popped low left side so I went with it, thought it would add a better dimension, just another season or two to look more convincing i think?
