Ficus Bonsai - Root over Rock 2
« on: March 16, 2015, 02:30 AM »
Hi All

Here is another root over rock Ficus that I have been busy with for the last 7 years.

I got the seedling from my dad and I decided to plant it over a rock.  I buried the rock and as the years passed I slowly removed the soil and exposed the roots.

I did post some of these images on another thread but decided to start a new thread as I need some expert advice.

Recently there have been a few aerial roots starting to grow at the top of the trunk and I think it would be great to get one of these to take nicely and run down a crack on the rock.  Does anyone have advice on what is the best way to protect the aerial root until it reaches the crack and then ensure that it runs down that crack.
