New Growth

A while back, I had a ficus tree growing in a container at this spot. Earlier this year, that tree was moved to be planted at its permanent location. When growing here, a main root of this tree has found its way through the bottom of the container to anchor itself in the ground. That main root had to be severed when the young plant was moved. Now look what has sprouted from that underground root: two baby plants. I know one can make beautiful bonsai trees from Ficus religiosa, so I am putting on my learning hat starting today to figure out how I will make a bonsai out of these unexpected growths. Wish me luck because I will need plenty of it.
