Howdy Friends,

I've had my FLF for just about a year now and I noticed a stark difference between some of the branches.

As you can see in the photos one of the branches looks like it's covered in thicker bark while the other looks rather bare and missing said bark. I have not noticed and shedding of bark or anything like that...

Could it be that the more bare branch is just younger and therefore on the path to growing and developing a barking?

As the tree grows the bark will change according to age and health. Losing bark is a good thing in the outdoors because the tree is growing fast. I don't see a problem with you ficus at this time.
