Root ligustrum progression

Post  Xavier de Lapeyre on Wed May 01, 2013 7:55 pm

Hi all,

This is a root that I saved during a root pruning session on a ligustrum back in June 2012.
I place the root in a pot and let some section poking out.
It eventually sprouted new growth and between july 2012 and now I've got four growth cycles [4th currently occuring now].

I'm not trying to get any thick trunk or anything old looking.
Just testing out ramifications techniques and having some fun.

I'll let the rest of the pictures speak for themselves.

June 2012

Tiny Ligustrum are fun. But you need a smaller pot. Here's one of mine just being lifted from its winter sandbox.

Thanks Jim,
I did repot it in a smaller pot [ smallest I have right now ]
I was waiting for it to recover from the extensive repotting it went through before posting, but ohh well, here it is.
