FW, thank you for your response. The branches I was considering cutting and rooting are at least 5/8'' or more in diameter. The fear that the cut branches will not "catch" is making me reconsider this idea. The tree is not "balanced" now as all its branches except one are all over the window, hungry for the light. It's no longer the sculptural topiarish shape I bought 15 years ago. So I've grown to love it as it looks now. As long as it's living, I'm happy. It has adapted to its location and even if I cut all branches that are too long and all over the window or growing horizontally, the new branches will grow the same way. Am I correct or not? I'm thinking now to find a way to support the horizontal branches. Also, I was surprised to learn that the FL can reach such a size in the wild. Would love to have one of these on the right size property, of course. Do you know how long they live? To reach that size, even in tropical climate, probably does not happen quickly. As always, I learn something from you. Thank you!

What size pot would you need to hold a 5'-7' one?

has anyone tried to remove bottom leaves from the main stem of their fiddle leaf fig tree? i'm trying to maintain the tree look that it came with, so i was hoping to remove the leaves that keep appearing on the bottom. i don't want to harm the health of the plant though. does anyone have experience with this? my tree has also grown a lot since we bought it several years ago and is outgrowing its sunny spot in the kitchen. it's now curved quite a bit at the top. i'm thinking of moving it to a room with more height. do you think it will ever straighten out with more height?
