TOPIC: Ficus Benjamina Trunk Fusion

Ficus Benjamina Trunk Fusion 6 months 3 weeks ago #37887

Hi there,
I recently purchased a ficus benjamina from the local garden shop.
It appears to be doing well and putting off lots of new growth.

My question is, how do I best fuse the three trunks into one?
Should I separate all three trunks and then wire them together?

I am very new to this and eager to learn more, any help would be greatly appreciated!
Warmly,
Cait

These are ficus benjamina branches stuck in a soil. You are years from getting this into anything that can be trained as Bonsai. Find better material.

Thank you all for your comments...I found an informative website that explains the process of fusing the trunks.
It will take years before it begins to resemble a bonsai of course, but the joy is in the journey :D
