Some mallsai progression stories

Post  JWT on Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:18 am

I once wanted to test some kind of wintering for Ulmus parvifolia. I bought the cheapest mallsai I could find. I did not see any potential with this one (sorry for the backgrounds!):



After I repotted it I realized it had some kind of root flare, so I chopped it. This time not to the first branch, but to a bud. I also decided it was not a test subject.



12 days later:



And about 2 months later, with lousy indoor growth:



After pruning:



After about one year:



and about year and a half later:



Ulmus p. is not hardy here in Finland, obviously, and the next autumn it got frost bite and died. That was not nice, but it really was a fun tree, and I got more progress than I thought was possible. I am not too much into fiddling with the same trees ad infinitum.

Thank you Bobby for commenting..

Some projects are just for the fun of it, like this one. Some are a little more serious. It completely fulfilled its purpose. This kind of transformation is one of those things that really move me.
