Annona squamosa series in Ming Dynasty pots

Post  Indo Andreas on Thu May 05, 2016 12:25 pm

Here are my Annona squamosa series in Ming Dynasty pots, these trees are from clippings that I received from the Bonsai Garden of Robert Stevens.
The pots came from the depth of Belitung Island, I was working for a treasure hunter (Tilman Walterfang) as operation manager. We salvage the samples and I thought they should have some use. I drilled the holes wis a diamond drill. The shakan style I like the most.

nice use of antique bowls (i have also been drilling out containers not originally intended as bonsai containers)

i see some places where two (or more) branches converge at the same place on the trunk(s)...
this will lead to undesirable bulging at the trunks, eventually leading to reverse taper...

just something to watch out for...

Nice, I too like the repurposed bowls.

You have fairly good leaf size reduction already. I wonder how small the leaves will get as ramification of branches continues.
are these seedlings old enough to flower yet?

For those not familiar with the genus Annona, they have very large leaves, and very delicious fruit. Soursop and Sweetsop are 2 Annonas, Cherimoya is another. Delicious tropical or sub-tropical fruit.

fun

I'm one of those not familiar Leo.
How well do they take the cold?
