my 10th juniper first styling ( shohin kengai procumbens )

Post  apisit chuldecha on Mon Nov 03, 2014 3:58 am

Hello everyone .
This is my tree, small and very simple a lot of them can get from garden center.

all the way trunk is still young and soft so I can row it easy on wiring.

finished wiring.

I cut the edge of this deep training pot to checking the root ,at first I also expected that the deep pot is made for root exposed training .
Unfortunately, this tree was grown up from cutting , so nothing interesting for the root to show.

so ,I put the tree back into the new pot without root expose, and It is done this way.


Thank you for watching my tree.
have a nice day .
Apisit.

Very Well done. I understand that styling of this juniper will only refine as time goes on, but here are some notes to consider when you style it next time (the aim is to make it as pleasant and natural looking).

1. Although the two jins look nice, they look very whimpy and unnatural. If you shorten one of them (preferably the left one), the emphasis on the right jin will make the tree look a lot nicer. If possible, reduce the gap between the right jin and the trunk by rotating the tree slightly (you may need to adjust the position of the pads a bit).
2. The lowest pad is making a very unnatural U-turn. You can hide the U-turn branch with some foliage (pull the 4th foliage up a little), or I might even consider jinning it (keep it short).
3. I like what you did with the apex, 2nd, and 3rd pads. It will look even better if you pull the lower pads up a little reducing the gap with the 1st pad. Or, you could bring the apex and the 1st pads down a little.
4. the foliage in the 1st pad is pointing too much upwards; in other words, the tertiary branches of the 1st pad is very naked.



Again, wait for the next round of styling to consider these points; don't push this tree too much.

Thank you, I appreciate all that comment, I will update this tree again once It ready , now I wait and see how this tree respond ,especially the foliage. the problem of this tree is, it's too small ,it's just not even 10 cm from the pot to the end , compare to the normal side of each foliage become too big for the pad of this tree size. I agree the 4th pad must be jin because it hard to control the the shape of little pad with big foliage in this right scale.
