semi-cascade turned to a dancing lady......

Post  Jed Franco on Sat Jan 26, 2013 12:39 pm

Good day, IBC friends...
Just want to post one of my collection...
A pemphis that is initially designed as a semi-cascade turned to be a dancing lady.... Very Happy


..this is how it looks when i purchased it....


....after one month of pampering and spraying with salt water...


...after wiring and defoliating....


..had a second thought that its not the style I really wanted for this tree... so I decided to re-pot it and turned it into an informal upright.... Surprised


..2 months after wiring...


..3 months after wiring...


..and now...the dancing lady...hope u like it
Good day and God bless... Very Happy

Hi Jed,

Those pemphis are great material. The tree actually made more 'sense' to me in the third photo and that is the option I would have selected.

Just out of curiosity, do you know if these will grow in a Mediterranean climate - we have lots of salt water .... Wink

Thanks, Mambo,

The semi-cascade style was its original form, but I wanted to show the tapering and the
movement of the trunk and how it dances... Very Happy , Anyway I can always bring it back to its
previous form.. I don't really know your climate, and I don't know if it can thrive in your country... Smile

Good day, IBC friends

An update for my ballerina: Today, I couldn't resist to take a hold on her since her wire started to bite its branches, so I loosened it's wire
and re-wired it... Smile



God bless and best regards... Very Happy

Looking good.

Looking good Jed- reposition it is definitely bringing the best out of the tree.

May I ask why you have not reduced the deadwood to the top right - it seems a bit heavy. Refining it will make it lighter and bring some balance to the tree?

Good work!

@lennard,

thanks for the compliments....Yes I did leave the deadwood on the right, as you noticed there are no other deadwood present and it would put a bit of age than without it...you said that it looks heavy, yes it is but I let a branch to grow on the right to compliment and balance it and wait for that branch to mature to add more depth...

Regards,
Jed Franco:D
