After some repoting this is how this Ficus ended up. This tree is going to look amazing when I start wiring and designing the tree.

Why did you place this tree so close to the edge of the pot? Can you give us an over head view?

This is a photo of the tree from the other side. This side got a big old scar that I've removed and put some cut sealer on for the wound to heal.

This tree is just in a plastic training pot for now. This tree must get wired when it settles

Because this beautiful Baobab was planted by the nursery in the wrong type of soil. I repotted the tree to make sure the roots didn't rot. I haven't watered this Baobab for almost 4 months.

This is how it looks like in the new pot.

My 4. Baobab's all together. Spring started in September. I am waiting patiently now for the new buds to come out.

You're not getting many responses to your post. That maybe due to the fact that there's nothing to argue about ;)
So, don't let that discourage you. I look forward to seeing more pictures when the buds have come out.
