Hi, what a stunning little tree, I think the pot is just a tiny bit too small, but if it were in the right pot you may have a show winner. Superb.

Stuning little shohin.
But you should clean the shari and plant it in an unglazed pot.

WOW!

Very impressive little tree. How long in training?

Because of the angle of the soil with the pot, it looks like water would just run off, and the tree/roots would not get any water. How do you water the tree, or is it not a problem?

I will clean the shari an bark in spring.

This is an unglazzed pot -Tokoname Pot-. The pot was wet.

There is alot of small pots on this website : Shohin-Bonsaï

Thanks Carolee

I trained this tree since 2 years. I have a photo of it after repotting and cleaning the shari. I used a micro sand blaster.
There is no problem to water it. The soil is made of zeolite and really well draining. I am just waiting for moss on the soil pale

Very beautiful tree! I agree with Ian about the pot, could be a tiny bit bigger. I too am very interested in this "mini sandblaster". Tell us more...

I use micro sand blaster with abrasive powder (Aluminum oxide 50 micron).

I use it on dirty old dead wood. The wood must be old enough and dry: Otherwise the powder will stick to wet wood.

It's only to clean the wood, and not to create dead wood.



Details after cleaning the wood:

Do you have a link to a website where one could buy such a device?
I'm allergic to junipers, but after seeing thes wonderfull small plants, I thinking about buying one anyway they are so nice.

What an amazing little juniper, thanks for sharing with us! This is the type of shohin that dreams are made of, amazing little tree!

Thanks for the tip on the mini blaster too!

A further link for an air brush grit blaster is, http://www.everythingairbrush.com/acatalog/Airbrushing.html

This is better for UK residents as it is based in sunny Bournemouth, Dorset.

It's a very nice juniper but..
This is my vision Smile . If I had this tree, It would be something like this. Maybe a little bit more compacted.
In my opinion it shows a better balance.

I like your idea Adam but I prefer the way Penjing has it at the moment. The trunk is very twisty and squashed and the foliage hugs the trunk well.

Hi Penjing,
Trully Awesome shohin, specialy juniper. It just my opinion .....: I agree with Adams virtual, even make more simple folliage, this way we can see more atractive trunk movement, witch is part of the beauty of the tree (actually vocal point).
Here is my vision, hope u like it ....
