My plan is to grow a very wide canopy and later put into a very shallow pot and try to grow ALOT of aerial roots. Something like this;

:wave: Zim,
I love this "Banyan" style too. Lots of misting the trunk throughout these warmer months to increase humidity levels, should encourage the aerial roots to form. You've managed to reduce the leaf size down too.
I've found that once the wider canopy forms, its better to use guy wires for anchoring down the branch lengths, rather than coiling wire.
At this moment, I believe your soil level should be covered thick with poo - (seamungus or dynamic lifter pellets - piled high!)

Anyways, you may already know all of this from research on this site, so all I can say whilst your developing this tree is
Keep calm and ramify! :D

Thanks a lot! Ok I will pile on the fertiliser this weekend [SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

I think if I get it into a very shallow pot that will encourage aerial roots also. Might graft some as well if possible.

And yes I only just noticed myself the reduced lead size!

I got impatient and reported this only after a few months as I found the perfect pot.

I also relocated the two aerial roots so we will see how that goes!
