Seed grown and kept close together these trees are now fused at the base. I think this might be called a clump style.
Ficus virens is the species but in some areas it is called infectoria.
Leaves removed to show the nice branch structure that is developing.
2009, Several seedlings have fused together by being kept in a small container
2016, defoliated to show the nice branching that is developing
Multiple trunks fused together from separate seedlings
Ficus infectoria is an invalid name, according to the botanists, and should technically be called Ficus virens. This material shows a coarser grower than some of my other virens. It seems to be quite happy in container culture with no special needs.
This bonsai is actually 3 or 4 root fused trees that were grown from seed. The seedlings were never separated to their own containers so that over time the root and bases fused to form one tree.
Defoliated once or twice yearly to improve branching, produce smaller leaves and to allow visualization of the branches
As the trees grew they naturally fused to each other so that now this is one root connected tree.
