Re: [Steven] Ficus nerifolia 2

Following is my final entry for this Nerifolia that began life as a cutting 5 years ago.

The first left branch need more development and thickening. A few months ago thinned out the primary branches but I think I'll need to remove some more to avoid the apex becoming too full.
I'd like to achieve more definition between the main branches so I might defoliate soon to reveal the structure better.
The base is fattening nicely however I'd like some more surface roots so I'll put sphagnum moss over the surface now.

Current height is 160mm.
