Juniper tanuki

Post  JimLewis on Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:45 pm

Here's my only tanuki. I've shown it before, but I show it now mostly as an example of how NOT to pot up a tree in a three-legged pot. After the least little windstorm, this one goes on its side.

It's up for a repot this winter anyway. Meanwhile, it is wired into its pot and I place it next to a bigger tree so it has someone to lean on in a stiff breeze.

The pot is handmade Japanese acquired at the Ueno Green Club in 2000 for much too many yen.

Hi Jim,
I like your bunjin. If I wasn't told that it was Tanuki, I think I would not have noticed from your picture; great job!
My favorite styles are bunjin and cascade; both of which need to be secured to the shelves for the very reason you describe.
