My neighbor has went in a nurseing home& I've got her plants.I got 2 of the 3 ficus trees.I know ones a benjaman& know the other is different.They've sat on her porch now for about a month& I finally made it over to haul loads of plants to the house.I do have pictures....but with sheetrocking my computer room....for some reason I just can't locate the cord for my camera to plug it into computer...and my computer room is CLEAN(clean my mess screw me up!)I know the leafs yellowing is probably cause they've had no water for a month at least!But they need re potting.I THINK the benjamin can be re potted in same pot,but the other...its roots are ABOVE the pot.So how much bigger pot
[dunno]

I know pictures,pictures,pictures.....

I have got the pictures!there even loaded now!

my pictures

if that thing up there don't work.........click yahoo albulm& is aug 05 fall 2005 albulm(with the pretty alhoa rose)

Update:I've repotted the very root bound one(very lil dirt in that pot.was a rooted pot)I have it set out in front of porch right now& soaked it well when potted.Pots about same size but a lil deeper and maybe 2 inches wider if that.I cut the bottom 2 inches off roots
..The other pot I just added potting mix.as did on the other ponytail type.

I also purchased a few clearance plants....than transplanted them into some of Louise's older pots so hubby thinks they just came from her house.I know she'd get a good chuckle over that ploy& he believes it too [Roll Eyes]
