I don't know the species, so can't be of too much help, but it is a very nice plant. I'd choose picture 2 as the front. Otherwise, the trunks always seem to be growing into each other at the top. Of course that could be cured by pruning.

How large is it? I get no idea of scale, even with that little pot put inside the other pot.

I think less foliage would help. Your two tops are conflicting and too heavy for the style of tree.

Hi Pre,

I'll go with the last two images as front, It got more visual drama I think.


I'll provide some sketch for you later.

regards,

I much prefer the last photo for your "front". It has drama...
Maybe a drum shaped pot, but something with texture.

Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions.

Hi Jun, thanks in advance. I'm really waiting for your reply here Very Happy I'll have the pot and wiring done after your sketch.

The last photo is my first choice also. The height of this is 2.5ft while the training pot is around 1ft radius.

Found a possible pot match for this material:





Will work on the foliage after the transplant...
