How to Modify

Post  bonsaisr on Sun Jul 11, 2010 2:38 pm

I don't know anything specifically about tamarinds, but in general, if this were my tree, I would put it in a large shallow training pot and cut the upper branches back severely to encourage budding on the lower trunk.

Good advice from Iris. Try cutting back like this and putting in a pot the approximate size/shape of this one and letting it grow for a while. (You can probably find another color.
