Here’s a three pic post.

You remember the Gnarly Root Monster from this post in December. December 4th, 2019, when the new year had all kinds of promise (they say hindsight is 2020 you know).

Then this year in May (24/05/2020) you saw the first update post.

Now we have for you today, a mere three months later, another update.

As I was sitting at school waiting for the kids:

I had time to unwire, choose branches and defoliate.

And just now, in The Nook, la fin.

It’s beginning to turn into a sweet little tree. I believe I have all the branches in place, now the strategy is to let it grow, thicken branches, develop ramification, and, most importantly, keep it green.

With as fast as its developing, I’m thinking you’ll see another update by this December.

And then, maybe next year will be a better year.

  1. Once again you’ve taken material I would have surely passed on and turned it into something interesting.
    I’m curious what made you choose the guy wires on those branches instead of wiring them out?

    1. At this point, guy wires aren’t the least invasive. The secondary branches were ready for wire and big wires on the primaries just weren’t needed. But! Without leaves, ficus branches will raise up, so the guy wires will hold them down
