Podocarpus

Post  Tom Simonyi on Thu Nov 10, 2016 1:29 am



I will be potting this tree up in the spring of 2017....I have been working it for a few years in its nursery container.

I believe it is a Podocarpus macrophylla.

Regards,
Tom

how do podos hang on to dead wood ?

if it is not too soft and may last a while, i dont imagine you would entertain the notion of removing that heavy left hand branch and making it a jin... ?

it seems that would improve the image - imho

I find it tough to get these to look good as smaller trees, so I really like where you have taken this one.

I would not remove any of the growth, but would try and develop a dense single canopy?

Thank you for your input and comments, Kevin. Brendan: Thank you as well, and your comments reflect just where I plan to take this tree in the future, at least at this point. FYI at this point, the tree stands 17 inches in height from the soil line. The trunk, exclusive of nebari, measures about 2 inches across.

Best regards to you both,
Tom
