Mighty mugo

Post  Max on Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:54 pm

Tiny steps forward to becoming a big bonsai...
This mugo was collected 3 years ago by Mauro.
This summer it got its first new curves...
A lot of work with deadwood and more bending will follow... I am looking forward to it! :-)







this is in about the future front.. Most probably turned a little ccw.
Refining the curves will follow next year

Very cool looking trunk growth. Are those clippers sitting on the plant, or in them? It almost looks like the tree ate them.

Thanks for your replies!
Ashiod, the clippers were lucky! They haven't been eaten by the tree! Laughing

Cool tree. Max, can you please tell us more about the branch bender. It looks like a hydeaulic pipe bender to me? Is the white head piece exchangable so you can bend a sharper curve?

Best,
Dorothy

Hi everybody, thanks for your replies!

Dorothy, all you guessed is right!
It is a hydraulic pipe bender but it has some custom made applications to make it even more robust.
These are alle the part of stainless steel. The white head piece is exchangable.
But the complete machine actually is a very expensive toy...
