Gmelina exotica / Vitex sp

Post  crush on Tue Nov 27, 2012 5:42 am

Hi IBC,

I wanna share my Mulawin daga-Gmelina exotica / Vitex sp a very interesting tree suitable for bonsai
because of its character so small when used for bonsai..
I was acquired months before and doing good recovery from wild, I like its tapered trunk and exposed roots.
I was wondering if anybody here could help me with the design before I do my own, which is more dead wood like attached photo from local news paper....and a very long way to go.

Leaves profile.

A design influence from local news paper.

C&C are much appreciated...Smile

Thanks,

crush

Crush,
Normally on our side Gmelina heartwood just rots when exposed.

Why not let the shrub grow for a year or two, and see what evolves.
Ground growing works best, you can use the colander method.

Gmelina also makes great miniatures.
Later.
