Looking for pictures of serissa

Post  Hoo on Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:08 pm

Having a bit of difficulty locating pictures of serissa as bonsai that have a thick trunk. Most I've found are too young to have decently sized trunk. If anyone has pictures they could upload or links to a good site, please let me know.

I have. Hoping this post will prompt someone with a larger, styled serissa to post a picture or two.

I have. I've mostly come across images of young whips or what appear to be younger hard-wood cuttings that have been rooted, shoved in a pot and called bonsai. Either way most are of relatively young trees with thin trunks and often have styling similar to most fukien teas that are imported... the S-Shaped trunk.

I realize that serissa's are relatively slow-growers and to get a decently thick trunk it will likely take several decades of growth (Likely longer where I live). I've recently come across one at a local nursery that has been neglected. It's been left to grow relatively unchecked and will take a bit of time to achieve a pleasing design with good ramification. Right now it's a shrub in a pot.

I'll post a picture once I get a chance to take one. I'd love to hear some ideas on styling. I've got a pretty good idea on where I'd like to go with it, but maybe someone will see something I've not.

Was just hoping someone out there in IBC land was sitting on a gold mine of styled serissa pictures that hadn't yet made their way to the internet.

You can check out my dad's website- www.bnjl.com He has some posted on there. I have a couple and will try to photograph them and post.

Jim that's because of the comma on the end of the link. Remove that and it should be fine. I have noticed this on other links before.

Yup. That did it. Those things are hard to spot. I always put a space at the end of a URL before any punctuation.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link, John. I like where the pygmy maple is headed.

Proposed Front

Front

Left

Rear

Right

Just repotted. Was badly rootbound. Has suffered a bit of leaf drop as expected.
I'll be covering the soil with some moss. Hopefully further reduce root ball in a year or two, see how the tree responds this year. I know it sits up high in the pot, but that's fine for the time being.

Images I've found thus far.
