CUT OR NOT CUT?

Post  jamb on Mon Nov 27, 2017 10:27 am

Goodmorning everyone,
according to you I should let the branch grow to close the big wound or take too much force on the plant and would it be better to work the scar to jin / shari?

I would probably let it grow another year to help close the wound a bit more.

My bigger concern is the large circling root under the big scar. I would be working to remove that as soon as reasonable.

It may be possible to close that wound but I think it would take a long time. The top of the cut appears to be callousing well due to the vigorous shoot growing above it but there seems to little or no callous at the bottom. Given the character of the tree I'd try to make a feature of the wound by doing a little carving.

Mind you, letting it grow a few more seasons while you develop the rest of the tree wont hurt and if you don't like the result you can always carve it anyway Cool

Also Marty is right about that circling root but assuming the rest of the root ball is healthy I would have thought that you could get away with just cutting that off at the next re-potting.

Regards

callus growth

I have found callus growth over a wound is encouraged and speeded up by smoothing the wound, and carefully cutting back into the callus then covering with wound sealant/vaseline to stop it drying out.

Exactly what breck said above.
Cleaning the callus by scrubbing the surface tissue with a sharp knife and protecting the new surface with cut paste would help.
But, to my personal opinion, carving an "uro" is the solution...
