Which pot?

Post  JimLewis on Sat Jul 27, 2013 11:16 am

I've had this little trident for nearly 10 years now and it has had several homes over those years.  Some of the pots fit it, others didn't.

Which of them -- presented here in no particular order -- do you think fit this tree best?

1.  

2.

3.  

4.

5.

and, and old pic, but I still have the pot:

6.

I have a couple of other deep cascade pots (blue green) that I've never considered for it.

Why can't you make up your mind?

Because I like most all of the pots. The first pot is what it's in today. Pot 3 (Tokonome ware) almost insists that this be a cascade, and while it's OK as a cascade, I like it as a semi-cascade/literati better. Pot 2 -- antique Japanese -- is probably the best pot I own, but there's something else in it now. Pot 5 is another favorite and another old Japanese pot -- tho not antique. Pot 4 is a converted teacup.

No crime being wishy-washy at my age.

#1 for me too. I also like #3, but agree that the tree is better more upright. Maybe you could find a pot with that shape and coloring that is not as deep???

No 1 for me. It has a calming that the others do not have.

#1 is very elegant,but I like #3 the best. it gives a sence of rugedness with the barren white pot and accents the trees form of a harse encvironment.

Thanks all, I think I'm leaning toward keeping it in its current pot (#1). The blue one would be a good alternative. It's not too late to change my mind, though.

Judy, I thought I had found a shallower one, but my memory "done me in" and now I have two identical white pots. It seems to look shallower when empty.

I invite you all to have a look at my posts in the display sections, since they're related -- kinda.
