As all the other figs it is not growing...It is just too cold now, and none of the figs are growing. I wanted to trunk chop it up to the lowest branch, but one of the two leaves it had on that branch has fallen off and the other one does not look too good. It has a large brown spot. Being a ficus benjamina variety...I believe in leaving some leaf bellow the chop.One of the little branches I chopped, and left without leaf has died back...so dont want to take any chances with it, since it is the only plant I have and I brought it from abroad.
I dont think it is the right variety to use for a competition, since I have now found out it is the slowest growing variety of benjamina, but I hope to learn something in the process, and that is important to me.
