Ficus Natalensis - Root over rock

(1/2) > >>

DorianJF:
Hi

I have a Natal Fig that was growing in a pot in the back of my dads garden.  I started to do a rock over rock in 2008 and I now really need to take it to the next level.

I have been raising it out of the soil and exposing the lower roots for them to harden off.

My question now is with regards to the styling.

I definitely believe that it needs to be wired and maybe trimmed but would really like to see your thoughts on where to next with the styling.

DorianJF:
So being the person that I am, I drop this ficus too.  First it was the Ficus Burtt-Davyi and now this one.  LUCKILY no damage except of all the soil falling out.

So a quick repot and here is a close up of the roots

DorianJF:
And the canopy

DorianJF:
So I posted these pics onto a Bonsai Facebook page and I got a reply where someone did a virt for me.

Would like to know what anyone thinks?

Yes, No anything???
 ???

SpongeMann:
That virt looks good butterfingers. jk. The low branches compliment the roots and the rock.  When is the proper time  to do trunk chop on ficus ?
