Cutting produce for a couple of weeks before going to transplant the ficus in the new land. If the plant is weakened and painful, postpone pruning. Remember that new shoots develop from buds. Main of them – apical and lateral, located in the leaf axils. If you will be forming the crown of the plants in the spring, it will be lush. Making the pruning in the autumn-winter period, you will receive a ficus with a lopsided crown.
Note also that reformed is much better suited to the young plants, while the old form is next to impossible. This is due to the fact that lignified stem buds awake with difficulty. Cutting off the shoots, make the cut above the kidney. At the same time on thick shoots, the cut must be beveled and thin.
To give the ficus a Bush form, pridobiti the main shoot at a height of 13 cm. If the plant has a large leaf, leave 3 to 4 of the sheet. From axillary buds will develop shoots. Side shoots have reached a length of 10 cm, pinch over the kidney, which faces outward from the crown. All of the slices, wipe with a damp cloth until it stops to stand out the milky juice. Then sprinkle the slices with powdered charcoal.
To form the trunk, take the ficus, a vertical inner barrel of which has already been pronounced. Constantly remove the side shoots, and leave only 4 or 5 upper, as long as the plant will not grow to the desired height. For outdoor trunk is 0.5 – 1 m, table – 0,3 – 0,4 m. Pinch the tip at the height of the plant. Thus you stimulate the growth of side shoots. All of the slices dry with a cloth and sprinkle powdered charcoal. Tie the trunk to the peg. The peg need to be removed when the plant will be sustainably and fairly equalized. To crown ficus has evolved evenly, turn the Stam tree different sides to the sun.
For the formation of the bunk of the trunk you will need a fairly Mature plant. Pinch when it reaches the desired height.For the formation of a duplex of the trunk, divide the crown into 3 parts. Each level of the shape of the ball, and the distance between them clean from all shoots and twigs. The amount of levels not necessarily the same. For the formation of trehubenko of the trunk, divide the crown into 5 parts.
During the sequential formation of levels from the bottom up to the top of the barrel remove only when the trunk reaches the desired height. It is possible to achieve the formation of a tiered ficus tree, planting in a container, plants of different heights and forming a spherical crown. Masking trunks wrapped in natural cloth.
The original form can give the ficus, by plexus. Put in a pot of the same development of young rubber plants with trunks, woody half. Their height should be about 15 cm Plant two plants together, if you want to tighten the trunks in a spiral, three – to weave a "pigtail". Weave they should be free, removing side shoots.
To form a flat lattice, six or more of the ficus plant on the same line at some distance from one another. When the plants reach the desired height, flexible trunks secure in position with the aid of twine or thick thread. To subsequently formed scars, periodically loosen the clamps. That trunks had grown together faster, remove the bark to the cambium in contact trunks. Firmly press the plants in these areas and pull the plastic wrap, when do you intend to extract juice.
