Gardening Know How Questions & Answers -


I’ve had this ficus for 19 years. A friend gave it to me when she moved. I have no idea how long she had it. I move it outside after Easter every year and this year I decided to repot it. A few weeks ago it shot out roots from the branches. It has never done this before. What does this mean? I’m hoping it’s not a sign of it dying and trying to reroot from the branches. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
