Trident raft repot

Post  JimLewis on Mon Apr 13, 2015 3:41 pm

Repotted this trident raft this spring.  I was getting worried when it stayed leafless so long, then it exploded.  The tree looks at its best when leafless, but early spring is also nice.  

 

Here's the tree last year at about th same time (a month earlier):



I've had this blue-green pot for 20 years; pot is probably Chinese, but much better quality than most of the Chinese pots we see these days.  Found it at an "antique shoppe" that specialized in Asian Stuff.

It stands about 10 inches from pot rim. I think it will get better drainage in the new pot.
