Ficus project 2

Everyone knows them the Chinese mass production ficus trees sold as bonsai. Cheap and ugly plants. I picked one up today the man sold it for 20 euro. That’s $27,18 or BP16.64 A bargain and took the challenge of making it in something more bonsai-like. It was 1.2m high. I managed to find foliage closer to the trunk and bend some branches closer. The left branch has to come down more but it will take time.

The lighter is there for size.

Here’s a before and after
