Ficus microcarpa chop

Here is a ficus I found from a man who was moving to Arizona and didn’t think that he could grow it there. (this will be an inebriated post, see if y’all can tell the difference)

As my friend Dave says ” Long story short” potted and fertilized. Just needs to grow.
It is at Dave’s party that I’m at. I know, blogging at a party,especially a Puerto Rican party, is lame. I’m just a passionate bonsai guy. Or drunk.
