Re: Ficus lyrata

In a message dated 7/5/2004 6:29:48 PM Central Standard Time, jsinger@igc.org 
The F. lyrata would have made a nice addition there.

In that case get another one.  From your description I'm gathering that all 
ficuses have invasive root systems.  I remember being told not to plant a 
bearded ficus near a swimming pool for that reason.  BTW, the bearded ficus 
seedling I brought with me has to stay inside now that it's 10 feet tall and in a 26" 
pot. I can no longer move it up and down steps.  Sadly, because of that fact 
it no longer has a beard. :-(  I'm waiting for the day its pot splits.
