Hello! Me again, and yes another Ficus Organensis... :)

This one was the first tree I started from the very roots, making a really drastic prune on it's taproot leaving it flat on the bottom, and planted on top of a ceramic tile piece with only two roots, and you know, Ficuses have an amazing rooting potential.

The result was a very good flared out Nebari, which for now still buried, but I noticed it also helps on the lower trunk taper.

Ok, long story short, I'm planing to make it as a medium sized Hokidachi, about 1.5 years working on it.

Here are some pics, feel free to coment.

{Completly leafless, late winter}

{After some pruning as buds began to swell, just to estimulate the more internal buds}
