That's a great little tree. I feel that if the tree is turned 3deg anti-clockwise, you'll bring the foliage tighter into the tree and increase the look of maturity.

The display is great too... great proportion of pot to stand, and I love the suiseki. Maybe the display could be better without the light colored wooden plank, or maybe stain it dark.

This looks awesome!

Please note that displaying is as personal as designing a tree. So please don't be obliged to follow someone's opinions on display... follow only if you agree.

I am really liking this display a lot now... maybe if you get your hands on a very irregularly shaped and extremely thin plank (dark stained); see below, then you will increase the 'wow effect' a bit more. Replace the square tiles with this.

Also note, that since shohin trees have less visual impact than larger trees, if you are putting this in a show with larger trees in it then 3-point display will do this JBP justice.

For 3-point, your suiseki maybe a tad bit large, so replace it with a smaller sized accent grass/plant. The accompanying tree (3-point) should be non-coniferous, and displayed at a different height as the JBP. The whole point is to increase interest in the display; maybe the size and style of both the trees are different too. For the same reason pots should be different (shape, glaze, etc.).

i actually prefer the original raw plank for a stand, but agree that a darker finish would be great
(even a simple dark oil rub)

also, great tree !!!!
