need advance!

Post  zheying on Sun Aug 04, 2013 11:15 am

I have a quite huge fukien tea tree, it has a very straight trunk.
I need some advice how should I style it,I think it is suitable for formal upright but I'm not confident how to make it
1Which branch should I cut or leave or grow or make ori something?

The branch

2 what should I do with the top?
And if i want to make a jin on the top,how should I style the jinn?[url=https://servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=8&u=18450858]

Here you are Zheying,

And you may wish to let it leaf out for a few months before doing anything. I have a few in the ground and I cut them down recently, presently letting the leaves grow back, before doing anything else.

Back to normal position...Why did you rotate it LLB. It was meant to be a semi cascade tree...hehehe, just kidding guys!

don't do anything yet, I you want to keep it in the ground for now. It will heal there quicker. Fukien tea is prone to Rotting, The bark will stay there but it will rot from the inside. Sorry, your shari or Jin plan is not possible.

Actually, L.L.B,

if the wood is old / mature enough, it does not rot. My birthday gift from the family back in 1990 something was a 35 to 50 year old Fukien tea. It came carved at the base and with lumps and bumps of old cut-backs, not one has ever rotted.
I water overhead everyday and wash the leaves, when it is not raining.

However, I think Zhe Ying's effort would be best growing first and then the design can be planned.
Later.

Zhe Ying,

L.L.B, is long lost brother. Jun looks like my family on my Dad's side. My grandfather was from Guangzhou, and my grandmother's family from what is now Pakistan or Kashmir [ pink complexion ]. They never married [ under English law.]
Hope that helps.
Best of growing with your Fukien Tea, they make extraordinary bonsai.
