Title: Ficus coreana on swamp oak
Post by: Indo Andreas on April 28, 2016, 08:09 AM
Here are a series of a new project where I took all my clippings of Ficus coreana and placed it on an old Aquarium swamp oak.

after cleaning and cutting the oak I placed and secured it into the pot, I used fine mash to build the baskets that hold the clippings. For the soil I used Lava sand and compost ratio 3 to 1.

after placing the clipping I cut all leaves off, then prepared a clay-lava-compost- moss mixture ratio 3-2/2-1 to fill the wire mash, I sprayed the wood constant during the process of applying the moss patches, then left it for a few days so the roots could grab on.

I left the wood for 3 days, spraying constantly every two hours after thee days new buds starting to show, so wiring had to start.

the whole process from start to finis wiring took 35 hours, now still have to spray it until the moss has grown onto the wire and roots start coming out. the new buds will be out soon, as growing in the tropics is faster then normal. I hope you stay tuned and have fun watching. until next time when leaves are showing.
