Mysore Fig Tree #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 June 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Close-up of the fig tree roots from the Mysore Fig posted yesterday. The Mysore Fig is unique because 90% of its roots are external. The roots underground only go as deep as 9"-12".

Photo captured March 24, 2011.

I'll be heading to Las Vegas and the surrounds for the next two weeks. See you soon!

Fabulous treatment Steve - as always - this is spectacular. I forgot to mention yesterday that these trees can be seena ll around Balboa Park in San Diego as well...some of them are downright mammoth like this one - they are very huge aren't they.
