Spring Update

Post  gman on Sat Apr 13, 2013 3:51 pm

Hello all,
This little fellow has enjoyed the recent mild weather and has flushed nicely.



Here is an old photo of when it was first repotted by the original owner, after he had air-layered the top of the tree he dug from a roadside ditch.

Cheers Graham

Summer 2014 update

Post  gman on Thu Aug 21, 2014 7:50 pm

Hi Folks here is an update from this week.  We've had an exceptional long dry period this summer with only a small amount of rain and it triggered a re-flush so I'm trying to hold it back.
The second photo shows how I lower the main stem (an 8 Ounce Gibbs fishing weight). Shocked 
Cheers Graham

thanks for the follow up... nice light and nicer larch.

Hi Kevin and thanks for your interest,
This is a homemade remedy ....trying to force the feeder roots lower down into the soil in the grow pot................when examining the roots in the yellow pot (orchid pot Cool) they were encircling the base of the pot...... so instead of trimming and repotting (into same pot) I had a vision of it within a fairly shallow pot/dish/landscape tray, so to achieve that I came up with this temporary training pot (the base of the rock is about an inch below the surface of the soil).....this way I can remove about an inch of the pot each year for the next couple of years.....which gives me time to find a suitable pot/tray.
