The "Constrictor"

Post  Guest on Thu Nov 15, 2012 11:01 am

Hi IBC!

Some people got "dragon", Some got "Dino" I got a Constrictor....hehehe!
I am in the process of creating a nest for my "Constrictor", Additional ideas are appreciated.




If I create a special stand for this it will be this high., maybe a tree root stand?




If I cut the stone pot to make the composition stand on its own this is where I will make the cut: What do you think? Cut or not?



Details of the twisted intertwined trunk...all of it are still alive. If I wont allow the top part to be part of the foliage pads, I'll create deadwood in the twisted trunk: What do you think? deadwood or not?






creating deep "pot" from these stones takes slow and time consuming. Phempis acidula needs good root space to flourish.

jun Smile

Hi Jun,
I have a couple of root-coiled-trees which resemble snakes or dragons. I think they are best displayed to show off the amazing trunk/coils. I would consider planting it in a nice bonsai pot to highlight the incredible coils. I think the rock competes with this feature. I love to create themes (i.e. a dragon tree planted on a cave stone, octopus clinging to a coral rock, etc). Nice tree.

Fantastic tree!! My vote is to keep the stone with the natural bottom and fashion a stand to suit the composition. The way it tapers up and down reminds me of an egg, which only furthers the constrictor idea.

Thank you guys for the nice comments and ideas...

I am still in the planning stage....The rock is still extended under the small pot it's standing on.

My choice, choice of an ignorant it is Embarassed
The stone pot standing alone (the flat cut surface is bothering me, though....)
The twisted trunk as is, no deadwood. Its your focus point..., its value is greater than the value of a deadwood (point of interest)

Well done... so, drilled a hole in the slate and in the bottom of the rock, and slid ametal pin through, did you? with or without the help of bolts, and with or without the help of superglue.

anyway, great job

Maybe you should have use something else that a stone for the horizontal structure, a metal piece for exemple to create a contrast. Very Happy

Bro,

it looks like it could strike.

You will either be a great Penjingist or have a very large hernia Laughing
Sorry for taking so long to respond, I wanted to see how you finished it.
Thanks for taking the time.
Later.
Stay Well.
