cedrus styling

Post  Cronic on Fri Nov 22, 2013 5:48 pm

the starter material from the nursery of Danny Use


half way styling:


current result styling. 2nd right branch appears to go straight to the right but is actually going more towards the back.. first left small branch is going slightly forward


The top view shows that there's a lot of work in balance and pad growth..


next spring i'll repot into 50-50 akadama-bims. don't know what kind of pot though.. if anyone has any idea..

Plant is very beautiful, I like it. Very Happy 

I think the branch at the top is too long, maybe shorter is better.



Best regards , Daniel Very Happy

It looks more like Cedrus atlantica glauca to me, but very good styling anyway. Except maybe the jin that looks a bit too regular, but maybe tyou'll refine it later?

could be, need to ask Danny.. but the new growth is a bit too green for a glauca.. thought glauca was the blue version, no?
i think the photo makes it appear a bit blue.. but the normal colour can ben seen on the photo of the start plant..

thanks
yeah, i'm going to refine the Jin later on.. was working on that when my daughter woke up bounce 
going to make it more slender and maybe make the shari a bit longer..
anyway, i plan to hide it half by letting part of the top grow around it..

Anyway, it's a Cedrus: some dendrologists consider C. atlantica as a sub-species of C. libani, so...

I live in a region where a lot of "exotic" conifers were planted in the 19th century, or even before, and from what I can see here, C. libani has much darker green needles. I may be wrong, and photos are sometimes deceiving.

Whatever, I like your Cedrus (libani or atlantica) a lot, Wink

so.. update on this one..

early 2014 it looked like this


mid 2014 after repotting and removed some wire


2015: pads have filled up nicely




winter 2016 re-wire


better picture early spring 2016


i'll just have to repot the tree in a few months to correct the potting angle..
for that moment also thinking about getting it a more suitable pot.. was thinking rectangular brownish.. any suggestions?
