I have this ficus listed for sale, but I felt the need to rework it anyway. I cut back superfluous branches and tried to establish a better structure for the future. The apex still needs to grow in and be worked on in the future. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out- it looks better in person.
Seeing if I could remove two back branches that were lanky and uninteresting:
Slight angle change might be in the future:
This tree should fill out well once it gets outside this summer. I think I would like to make the apex a but taller in the future but I think the two main branches are in a better place for growing now.
